Prior to joining FOX 9, he worked at WITI-TV in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, as a political reporter. As U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan became House speaker and Wisconsinite Reince Priebus joined Trump’s White House as chief of staff, he was at the center of the political universe. He covered the 2016 Iowa caucuses, both 2016 political conventions, and a key battleground state in Wisconsin that influenced the outcome of the presidential election that year. He was also a tenacious reporter investigating Milwaukee City Hall, unearthing various details of a health department scandal involving lead abatement in homes.

In Louisville, he probed municipal government corruption, which resulted in numerous changes, and he set up a one-man state Capitol bureau during legislative sessions.
While reporting for KMOX-AM in St. Louis and KOMU-TV in Columbia/Jefferson City, Theo began his career covering government and politics at the Missouri State Capitol, where he first learned about the legislative process.
Theo’s work has earned him two Emmys: in 2017 for an investigation that revealed notorious Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke was rarely on the job, and in 2016 for breaking news coverage of a huge fire. In 2013, he received a regional Edward R. Murrow award for a story about issue panhandlers.
