Kevin Fischer is a veteran broadcaster, the recipient of over 150 major journalism awards from the Milwaukee Press Club, the Wisconsin Associated Press, the Northwest Broadcast News Association, the Wisconsin Bar Association, and others. He has been seen and heard on Milwaukee TV and radio stations for over three decades. A longtime aide to state Senate Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature, Kevin can be seen offering his views on the news on the public affairs program, "InterCHANGE," on Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10, and heard filling in on Newstalk 1130 WISN. He lives with his wife, Jennifer, and their lovely young daughter, Kyla Audrey, in Franklin.
Last May, the Journal Sentinel’s not-so-reliable PolitiFact reported:
“Gov. Scott Walker and his recall critics may as well be on different planets when it comes to describing how local schools fared under his budget.
“Walker tells audiences that most schools got far more saving from his controversial collective bargaining limits - money-saving ‘tools’ in Walker's phrasing - than they suffered in cuts from his budget.
“Democratic Party officials and their allies say schools all over the state suffered ‘devastating’ aid cuts, and Walker recall opponent Tom Barrett says education was ‘gutted.’
“Milwaukee Public Schools wound up cutting 7% of its staff, including 300-plus teachers - though declining enrollment also factored in.”
That no good, evil Scott Walker.
Fast forward to today.
MPS is hiring like crazy.
