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.
As many of you know, Channel 10’s InterCHANGE is taped in the studios of MATC. If the weather conditions force the closing of MATC, there will be no InterCHANGE Friday night at 6:30, Sunday morning at 11:00. If there is a show, here are the topics we’ll discuss:
1 – FIVE YEARS IN PRISON FOR KILLING HER BABY.
An emotionally troubled woman gets five years in prison for drowning her baby. Is five years enough for murdering a baby? What kind of message does that send? Will the woman who recently murdered her foster child here also get 5 years? Does the court system forgive you if you are “emotionally troubled” or “mentally ill” or if you had a “tough and abusive background.” Or, does the court system (rightfully so?) not hold mentally ill people responsible for their criminal actions?
2 – CAROLINE KENNEDY.
Is Caroline Kennedy qualified for the position of United States Senator? Or, is it just because some people want Camelot to continue? Is she any more qualified for a big time position than Sarah Palin was?
3 – S.N.L.
Saturday Night Live made fun of the blind New York Governor.Was it funny? Did it cross the line? Is it funny to make fun of someone with a disability? Do different rules apply because it is Saturday Night Live? Because he is a politician? Or, was SNL just being irreverent like it always has been?
Any predictions for big things that might happen locally, statewide, or nationally in the coming year? Any major things that you’d like to see happen?
