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.
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 […]
SAN JOSE, Calif. — As the Marquette University Golden Eagles took on Murray State in Hartford, Connecticut as the NCAA Tournament got underway on Thursday, March 21, the Wisconsin Badgers practiced in San Jose, California, ahead of their Friday matchup with the Oregon Ducks. The Badgers took part in public practice Thursday, with the Ducks riding an eight-game winning streak. 39.

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 […]
MILWAUKEE — Winter is usually still in full effect in March, with cold and snow. Marquette University‘s golf team is now able to say — bring it on, thanks to the Athletic and Human Performance Research Center. Inside that building, it always feels like a summer day. “Breathtaking! Wanting to get in here right away,” said Austin Kendziorski, senior golfer. The space is the home of the Golden Eagles golf team. “We obviously wanted to be on par with some of […]
MILWAUKEE — New experiences can be scary, but they can also be appealing and exciting, and that was the case for some elementary students at the Milwaukee Academy of Science. “I can’t tell you how excited I am,” said Kurt Hansen, physical education teacher at Milwaukee Academy of Science. Golf is a sport many of the kids never had the chance to try before. “We are really excited to kick off a new national school partnership,” said David Cohn, First […]
INDIANAPOLIS — There are a lot of Wisconsin ties at this year’s NFL Scouting Combine, including eight Wisconsin Badgers and a couple of other players who are natives of the state. And how about Coach Lance Leipold? The longtime, big-time winner at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater is not in Indianapolis, but a couple of his players from the University of Buffalo are. “He brought me in that was my first offer you know. Those guys, they trusted me when I first […]
INDIANAPOLIS — This is not the first time the Packers have come to the NFL Scouting Combine thinking they’ll look for a tight end — and a lot of the top tight ends say they can block and catch passes. “They’re both pretty fun,” said TJ Hockenson, former Iowa tight end. “I mean, honestly, I love to block. I love to run routes. I just really pride myself that I can do both. “I’m a really great overall tight end,” said […]
INDIANAPOLIS — We all know Aaron Rodgers will again be the starting quarterback for the Green Bay Packers going into next season. But could the team draft his possible predecessor this year? Friday, Mar. 2 was a big day for a lot of the attendees of the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, because it’s quarterback day. Kyler Murray might be the number-one draft choice — he was certainly the number one draw in terms of media attention. He met the […]
