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.

The animal was spotted a few times in southern Wisconsin, including Franklin.
Monday, a Chicago police officer shot and killed a cougar.
Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources officials hope to compare DNA from the cougar that was shot Monday by police on Chicago’s North Side to DNA from a cougar spotted northeast of Milton in January.
DNR officials last month said DNA testing showed the young male cougar seen near Milton is of North American origin and likely roamed here from the Black Hills area of South Dakota in search of new territory.
Officials confirmed in January cougar tracks near Clinton about 2 miles north of the Illinois border, and on March 7 a state conservation warden found cougar tracks northeast of Elkhorn.
