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.
I recall during my discussion on this topic last week on WISN the woman who called in who said it would have cost $110 to send her son's hockey equipment onboard a Midwest flight. She saved $56 by mailing the sticks, helmets, etc.
The airlines are in full "stick it to the passenger" mode, finding creative ways to add on new charges.
