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!

    WAUKESHA (WITI) — Teaching and coaching were his calling.

The kids know it,” Luther said. On a high school football Friday last fall, Luther, who goes by “Coach” to those who know him best wasn’t going to miss a chance to see his Alma Mater — Waukesha South, […]

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — It’s no surprise that when Milwaukee’s Vel Phillips was honored for her work in the women’s and civil rights movements last Thursday, January 29th, baseball legend Hank Aaron was there — quietly and without fanfare. What this humble American hero has done off the diamond speaks volumes. Long before steroids tarnished some of the most cherished records in Major League Baseball, there was Henry Louis Aaron, “Hammer,” “Hammerin’ Hank,” “Bad Henry.” The 25-time All-Star’s numbers are staggering, […]

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The great collapse of 2014 — the worst in Milwaukee Brewers history, and one of the worst ever in baseball. From the owner to the clubhouse manager, the Crew is determined to turn things around this season. The Brewers roared out of the gate last year — winning 20 of their first 27 games.

    Odds were stacked against him, but Scooter Gennett is happy to be Brewers starting second-baseman

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The odds were stacked against Scooter Gennett when it came to making it to the Major Leagues. His size was a big factor working against him — but the size of his heart and his confidence couldn’t be measured. Now, Gennett is the Brewers’ starting second-baseman. Ryan Joseph Gennett accepted teammate Carlos Gomez’ playful jab at his 5’10” 170-pound frame at the “Brewers On Deck” event Sunday, January 25th. He’s used to it. After all, how many […]
