This Just In ...

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.

A big weekend at the Fischer household

It was bound to happen. People have been asking me for the longest time.

When are you going to do it? When? When? When???

I finally broke down and the Fischer household has a new addition: a soft-coated Wheaton terrier named Frisky because, well, he is. That little guy is already loving his new home and the girls are crazy nuts about him.

Why now? Because I’ve always wanted a dog and I’ve been doing a lot of research about breeds and timing of the purchase, especially when you have a toddler.

In the end, I think I was swayed by the immortal words of the famous pet author, Edgar Vetman who said, “Every home should have a dog, period. It would be un-American not to have a dog, or any other pet for that matter, when there are children. They want and need pets. If you have any doubt, get a pet. You’ll be glad you did.”

After I read that powerfully persuasive stuff, I gotta tell you, I was sold.

Jennifer wanted to hold off a bit longer until Kyla was older. I was insisting we get a dog and get one soon. Finally, I just took the puppy by the paws.

We’re so overjoyed and want to share our happiness that we’re thinking of having a “Come Meet Frisky” Franklin open house.

Dogs. They’re so neat.
