Before arriving in Green Bay in 2011, he spent more than three years as a multimedia journalist, producer and fill-in sports anchor at Rockford’s NBC affiliate, WREX-TV. Bill also spent time working as a field producer, writer, editor and photographer in Chicago and Champaign, Ill. television newsrooms.
A native of Chicago’s south suburbs, he received a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2008, specializing in political science and speech communication.
Bill’s journalism career began at the University of Illinois, starting as a reporter with Illini Media Company — the independent, student-run media organization — in 2004.
Bill is excited to be back in Wisconsin. When he’s not working, you can usually find him hiking, camping, downhill skiing, or on an area body of water with (or without) one or two skis strapped to his feet. Bill is a show skier, 3-event competitive water skier, and certified ski instructor.
