Weekdays 6:00am - 10:00am

While Bart technically didn't start in radio until a college internship at WCOW-FM in Sparta, Wisconsin, there are dozens of missing cassette tapes that would prove his love for radio started during his childhood. But upon graduation from UW-La Crosse, Bart's first job was instead in television, working as a reporter/photographer at WKBT-TV. Eventually Bart found his way back to radio in his hometown of Fond du Lac at WFON-FM, where he helmed "Mornings with Bart" from 2011-2015 and did sports play-by-play for KFIZ-AM.Bart began working at The FAN in August of 2014 as a producer on the BIG SHOW before moving to the mornings. "Chuck & Winkler" debuted on August 4th, 2016.Bart currently resides in Shorewood with his wife Nikol. The first of four brothers all with the same initials; BGW, Bart bleeds Green & Gold. A Packers shareholder, he’s got a piece of old Lambeau Field turf in his freezer and sleeps in Packer sweatpants under a Packers blanket! Plus, he and his wife hold the record for highest bar tab for a wedding reception held at Lambeau Field.

Hometown: Fond du Lac, WI

Favorite drink: Captain Morgan and Diet Dr. Pepper (in moderation!)

What 3 words describe you best? Clever, focused, detailed, attentive

What’s on your iPod? New alt rock, 80s one-hit wonders, classic 90s pop to early 2000s Country and then to Neil Diamond… all in a span of 20 minutes.

Describe a perfect day off: Hanging out with my two best friends - my wife and my couch.

If you weren’t in radio, what job would you have? Game show host or SNL cast member. A realistic adult job would be to be a city planner (played a lot of Sim City as a kid)
