    I met Mike Gousha twice while working in public relations at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts. He was always polite, friendly and professional, just as he comes across on TV. Gousha’s dedication to his work is inspiring. From 2001 to 2012 I hosted an interview program I created on the community cable channel in West Allis called “Artscape.” I patterned it after Gousha’s “Sunday Night” on WTMJ-TV Channel 4. Mike Gousha is and always will be the most admired broadcast journalist/interviewer we have in Milwaukee. No one else comes close.
