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.
During the recent NCAA basketball tournament, analyst Charles Barkley joked that the Wisconsin Badgers could beat the Milwaukee Bucks. Maybe it wasn't a joke.
From today's Journal Sentinel sports page:
"Indiana coach Frank Vogel gambled his reserves could beat the league-worst Bucks as the Pacers tried to keep pace with Miami in the race for the top seeding in the Eastern Conference.
"And Vogel won his bet, sitting all five starters for the entire game and emerging with a victory when Chris Copeland drove for the winning basket with 1.2 seconds left."
Makes it tougher to plead for a new arena.
