The New Ann Carroll?

Trenni Kusnierek has joined the FSN broadcast team for Brewers games in 2008, according to Bob Wolfley of the Journal-Sentinel. Kusnierek is a Muskego native, graduated from Marquette University and used to work for WDJT-TV (Channel 58) in Milwaukee. She has recently worked for the NFL Network and for FSN covering the Pittsburgh Pirates, Steelers and Penguins.

Don't worry Brewer fans. She is not Ann Carroll. She was a part of the Winter Warm-Up TV special a week or two ago and seemed to be comfortable, knowledgeable and personable. She even pronounced names right! I like that they brought in a local person for the job too. It will add a little local flavor and she is said to be a "huge Brewers fan."

If you're interested, here is a YouTube video of some of her work with FSN last year covering the Pittsburgh Penguins:

She seems to have been pretty popular in Pittsburgh based on the responses to that video and the fact that she has her own MySpace fan club. There's a little more background on her HERE, HERE and HERE.

In Other News
- Suppan's restaurant has been making the news - had an article today and the Brewer blog featured a post on the business earlier this week too. It sounds like a fairly neat place, one that I'm sure I'd enjoy visiting some day and I'm pretty sure Suppan is the kind of guy that won't let it get in the way of his first priority - being a successful professional athlete. Sometimes guys start things like this and lose sight of their priorities (i.e. Nick Barnett and Club 5-6 or whatever it was called).

loved Trenni in PGH. She's knowledgeable, funny, and solid both in-studio and on the sidelines. Sucked when she left- you're better off for having her at you ballgames.
