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.
Former Green Bay Packer Mark Tauscher will never be equated with the King’s English. He speaks like the typical Green and Gold fan at the end of the bar. That doesn’t mean he lacks pro football smarts.
During the pre-game broadcast of Friday night’s pre-season game against Seattle, one of the flag ship station’s so-called experts profoundly and rather confidently expressed that now that we were in week #3 of the pre-season that the fans would be rewarded by seeing the packer’s 1st-string offense for a lengthy period of time on the fielded, possibly three quarters. Tauscher politely and respectfully begged to digger.
The once-popular offensive lineman proceeded to explain why fans might not necessarily see Aaron Rodgers for more than a series or two. Because this was radio we weren’t afforded the opportunity to see the jaws of the “expert” hit the studio floor. Tauscher, in a very nice way, had told the misinformed analyst that he was misinformed.
Turns out that Tauscher's insight was right.
I'd prefer that Dennis Krause and Bill Scott along with Tauscher and newspaper reporters that regularly cover the Packers handle most of the pre-game duties, if you want the best programming possible.
