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.

One of the best college basketball teams in Wisconsin every year you probably never heard of

They play in the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference.

They’re located in Fox Point, WI.

The men’s and women’s teams are called the Wolves.

They consistently are the elite of the conference.

They are Cardinal Stritch University.

I’ve had the privilege for many, many years of timing the men’s and women’s games at Cardinal Stritch. 

Despite the quality of their programs and their many season and conference titles, Cardinal Stritch victories garner only a few sentences in the daily sports section. Channels 4, 6, and 12 never send a cameraman to their gym to capture game film. The TV sports departments will argue they don’t have the on-air time to devote to Stritch highlights. This is baloney. Then you make time.

He was the subject of a great piece in the Journal Sentinel recently.

Congratulations, Cardinal Stritch, and may you get the local media coverage in the future you deserve.
