I have been at FOX6 since September 1990 and have enjoyed every minute of it.
Growing up in West Bend, I never would have believed that I would get the chance to cover events such as Super Bowls and Final Fours and Major League playoff games and NASCAR events as a Milwaukee sportscaster. In between, there have been so many feature stories with folks who excel far from the spotlight.
With continually evolving technology, there are more and more exciting ways to share those stories. This job is never the same from day to day, which is one of the reasons it is so much fun.
Thanks for letting me be a part of your viewing experience.
GREEN BAY — The Green Bay Packers gathered Tuesday, May 21 for practice at Hinkle Field on the first day of OTAs (organized team activities). It marked the start of what fans hope will be a long and fruitful relationship — with a new head coach at the helm. It’s not Dating 101, but rather, Football 101, but the same principle applies. You don’t just leap into a relationship. You let it grow organically. FOX6 News found Aaron Rodgers and Matt […]
MILWAUKEE — Giannis Antetokounmpo, also known as the Greek Freak, has become an NBA superstar, and his journey from Greece to Milwaukee has prompted others to make that trip to watch him play. “It was amazing,” said Aggelos Stratis, 16, from Greece. Twenty students from Greece took a trip of a lifetime — heading to Milwaukee for one reason. “He’s the biggest. He’s the biggest star. He’s like a god,” said Giannikos Douskas, Greek sports reporter. The students won a […]
HARTFORD — The weather in Wisconsin might not always be on par with other states when it comes to golfing, but the state’s courses have garnered a lot of attention and great events. Spring in Wisconsin isn’t always the best for golf, but come summer, the state shines. “It’s become, arguably, the best summer golf destination in the whole country, which is absolutely amazing,” said John Morrissett, Erin Hills competitions director. “With Sand Valley and Erin Hills and certainly Whistling Straits, […]
MILWAUKEE — Win or go home — that’s what the Milwaukee Wave face Sunday, April 28 in a one-game playoff for the conference title. “It’s playoff time! It’s a new season. We got through Round 1, and here we are going into our conference finals,” said Giuliano Olivero, head coach. “We’ve been ready to go and I think all year we’ve been focused and ready to go,” said Ian Bennett, forward. Coach Olivero and Bennett spoke out with just one […]
MILWAUKEE — It would be easy to assume that NBA players have already gotten as good as they are going to get in basketball once they’re in the playoffs, but that’s actually far from the truth. The Milwaukee Bucks’ attention to improvement is one reason they’re expecting a long playoff run. There are many people to point to when identifying the reasons for the success of the Milwaukee Bucks, including any number of players, the head coach, the general manager, […]
MILWAUKEE — The goal of this year’s Milwaukee Bucks is to win a championship. It has only been done once before in Milwaukee — back in 1971. One of the men who was a part of that winning team is Jon McGlocklin, who recently sat down with FOX6’s Tim Van Vooren. McGlocklin: That year is very clear to me. I think about that year, I recall going to training camp in Janesville. Oscar was with us for the first time […]
MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Wave soccer team offers family-friendly entertainment — this season, with a lot of wins as well — and there’s one family that really makes the team succeed. Larry Sayles is the Wave’s director of soccer operations. His son Brian is the team’s equipment manager. “They’re diehard. They’d do anything for you. Sometimes you’re like, ‘We can help out,’ but they’ll do everything for you so you can get ready to focus on the game,” said Ian […]
GREEN BAY — The Green Bay Packers have one Super Bowl win in the Aaron Rodgers era — one more than a lot of teams, but fewer than many think Green Bay should have in that time frame. A new article laid the blame at the feet of both Rodgers and former Coach Mike McCarthy for not getting more Lombardi trophies. Tyler Dunne wrote in Bleacher Report that McCarthy missed team meetings while he was upstairs at Lambeau Field in […]

LAKE GENEVA — Before welcoming spring, officials at Grand Geneva Resort & Spa say farewell to winter each year — and there’s plenty of excitement during the sendoff. The ski hill at Grant Geneva was converted into a race track for the AMSOIL Championship Snocross “Ram Trucks Snocross Grand Finale.” “We start planning now for next year, you might say. We make sure that we make enough snow that this race is very successful, so you probably see out back, we […]
MILWAUKEE — When the Milwaukee Bucks play, the goal is to put the best players on the floor and run plays to get the best shot possible, which hopefully leads to scoring and ultimately winning the game. The same can be said for another game, but with this one, players got an added bonus. “NBA Math Hoops is a fundamental board game that helps kids with their math facts, so we’ve combined math and the NBA/WNBA,” said Calvin Sivert, Learn Fresh […]
MILWAUKEE — In the rank structure of the Navy, admiral is above captain. In the structure of the Milwaukee Admirals hockey, the captain is unrivaled. You can find the leader of a hockey team by looking for the “C.” “It’s an honor,” said Jarred Tinordi, Admirals defenseman and captain. “Nowadays in hockey, you don’t have to have a letter on your jersey to be a leader, right? You can speak up. You can lead by example on the ice — do […]
