I have been as blessed in my work as anyone I know; because I have been fortunate to do what I love for close to 35 years, and to do it in Milwaukee.

As a self-described "frustrated athlete who loves people", I've been able to couple my passion for sports with a desire to meet men and women who have a gift to share, and, often times, a compelling story.

Having the chance to share those local stories has become as meaningful as anything I've been able to do-whether covering a Brewers World Series (yes, I'm old enough to have been there in 1982), or a Super Bowl, or a Rose Bowl, or a Final Four.

Over 27 years ago, I came to town to continue my sportscasting career.

At the time, I was told that Wisconsinites are wonderful folks, hard-working, honest-the kind of people you can't fool.

It's been a real honor to try and earn your trust for over 27 years-the past 24 at FOX 6.

I'm a Syracuse, New York native, but Milwaukee has become HOME. I love the parks, the walking and biking paths, the restaurants, getting to meet as many of you as possible.

I'm thankful that my son and daughter (ages 15 and 11), the pride and joy of my life, were born and bred here.

I never did become a Brett Favre, or a Robin Yount, or a Dwayne Wade, but I'm truly thankful for and humbled by trying to do what I do for all of you.

I wouldn't trade it, although, I saw a pair of Gucci shoes that D. Wade had on; they were SWEET!

    BROWN DEER (WITI) — The Brown Deer High School football team is enjoying another fine season — with five wins and just one loss — but their biggest victories have come off the field. “We were 0-25 across the three levels and I think 20 of the 25 games we were mercy ruled. It was tough!” Head Coach Rob Green said. Coach Green wondered what he’d gotten into 14 years ago when he took over a downtrodden Brown Deer High […]

They are the proud members of the Wounded Warrior amputee softball team. “It is a comeback story for every one of these players. No matter where they go, they’re treated well by small town America, big town America — everybody,” Dave Wege said. Truer words were never spoken, because no comeback in sports can come close to the ones the men on the Wounded Warrior […]

    Their school cancelled varsity football, but some Nicolet students are still getting the opportunity to play

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — This high school football team doesn’t play in a league, but in many ways, they’re in a league of their own. Just ask a couple of teammates who thought their prep careers were over when their school dropped varsity football. “Freshman through senior, we have 28 kids, and that’s the kind of team that we typically have. We work some miracles with God’s help to play as good a football as we do,” Coach Larry Galeener said. […]

    A positive role model: Bucks rookie Jabari Parker says he wants to inspire young people

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Time will tell if Milwaukee Bucks rookie Jabari Parker becomes the best player in the NBA’s talented class of 2014. But this much is a slam dunk: When his career is over, Parker wants to be remembered as much for the points he scores off the court, as on. The Bucks are counting on top draft pick Jabari Parker to fill up the stat sheet, now that he has his own NBA card. The players’ choice to […]

    Packers trade Worthy to Patriots

    Green Bay – After two injury-filled seasons, plus an entire offseason, the Packers have traded defensive end Jerel Worthy to the New England Patriots for a conditional future pick. Worthy, who’s been sidelined by a bad back, has to be cleared by the Patriots before the deal goes through. The 2012 second round pick from UCLA is one of 3 players picked in that class (safety Jerron McMillian linebacker Terrell Manning) who are now longer with the team.
