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 baby daughter, Kyla Audrey, in Franklin.
He says he doesn’t apologize for demanding the best from his players.
“Anybody that is going to come to work with enthusiasm, concentrate and play hard will never have a problem with me. I don't care if they throw the ball in the seats 25 times a game. They'll be pulled out of the game before they get to 25, of course, but they will never have a problem with me,” said Skiles.
Skiles will have his hands full. The dreadful Bucks were 26-56 last year.
It's not going to be easy. I don't have any magic dust to sprinkle on people. We're going to have to do it by working harder and playing better (defense), and the first step will be getting competitive every single night. The team has not been competitive every night and if we do that, good things will happen,” said Skiles.
Skiles needs to light a fire under the Bucks.
It would also be nice to get some decent personnel on the court. And meddling owner Herb Kohl, who has decimated this team, should stop interfering.
