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!

    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 […]

    ST. FRANCIS (WITI) –It was a great scene before the game between St. Thomas More and St. Francis, the captains include 11-year-old Logan. Logan has been the inspiration for an ability center that’s coming together in St. Francis and it’s being done in concert by both schools. Foes on the field, but friends off it for a greater cause. “Logan is a shaken baby survivor, when he was a month old and hes been in special needs classes his entire […]

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — They say life begins at 40. Maybe 50 — but thanks to the Senior Olympics, and a challenge from a loved one, Gary Pinter is 60-something and going strong! “I was team photographer as one of the parents for Marquette University, and I’m out there trying to run all these cross country tracks through the woods, and I couldn’t keep up with these kids,” Pinter said. Pinter was proud to be at Marquette’s cross country meets. His […]

    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.

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Andy Meier hadn’t played golf in years. He figured he might never swing a club again. But today — thanks to a life-changing invention, Andy is able to stand up and play. It’s an invention that can change the lives of many in his position. Andy Meier loves golf. In fact, he loves life. But his life changed seven years ago on a family pilgrimage to eastern Europe to visit the holy place Medjugorje. The bus they […]

    Life without Jermichal Finley: Who will serve the Packers at the tight end position this season?

    GREEN BAY (WITI) — There’s been plenty of focus on the Green Bay Packers’ need to improve their defense — and rightly so. But the offense needs to improve in the red zone, which takes us to the tight end position — and quite possibly, life without Jermichael Finley. When talented Packers tight end Jermichael Finley went down with a frightening injury against the Cleveland Browns last summer, the first concern was his well-being. Then came the realization that his […]

    “I couldn’t live like that:” Packers rookie Carl Bradford’s heart broken by tragedy, but he’s inspired by his hero

    GREEN BAY (WITI) — Green Bay Packers rookie Carl Bradford has his doubters. He’s not tall enough. His arms aren’t long enough. But Bradford knows what he can control — and that’s a heart. A heart broken by tragedy, but inspired by his hero. “It’s a blessing to do this. I come here smiling every day because I know the great opportunity I’m given and I take advantage of that every day,” Bradford said. If it sounds like Packers fourth-round […]

    Brewer’s reliever Jeremy Jeffress: “It’s a blessing” to be back home

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — When Jeremy Jeffress became a free agent, there were 15 Major League teams interested in his services — but he wanted to return to the Milwaukee Brewers, where he started his professional career. That could turn out to be a welcome “relief” for all concerned. “It’s a blessing, to be honest with you. I always — I never wanted to leave. I know everybody, everybody’s welcomed me back with open arms,” Jeffress said. Jeffress, a Brewers reliever, […]

    “It felt good!” 22-year-old up-and-coming golfer wins Wisconsin State AM in Mequon

    MEQUON (WITI) — Golf is an individual sport, but for one local champion, the love and support of family just might have been the difference in the biggest win of a budding career. “A little caddy guy, he goes ‘this is your day, you know?” He goes, ‘I’m rooting for you,’ so it was a good start,” Alex Gaugert said. Was it ever! Lake Geneva’s Gaugert came from four strokes down to win the 113th Wisconsin Amateur Golf Championship at […]

That includes Antonio Freeman, who believes that playing for the Packers was one of the greatest gifts of his life.
