Theo knows how to convey urgency and provide context live on location. He has reported from the scene of Ferguson-related protests, the 2014 shooting inside a Louisville high school, major snowstorms, and the 2012 mass killing inside a Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee.
Theo’s passion is holding public officials accountable. He’s chased them up stairways and through parking lots. Candidates have (unsuccessfully) tried to get Theo banned from covering their races. His reporting has led to legislative action and policy changes.
Theo doesn’t back down from a confrontation to find the truth. He’s questioned mayors about illegal spending and questionable hiring — and once had a car door slammed into his arm by a mayor trying to flee — and is a frequent user of both open records and open meetings laws.
