Bradley has been under fire this week for columns she wrote in the 90s as a Marquette student, criticizing abortion, gays, and former President Bill Clinton.

A native of Prairie du Chien, Brad graduated from UW - La Crosse and has worked in radio news for more than 30 years, mostly in the La Crosse area. He regularly covers local courts and city and county government. Brad produces the features "Yesterday in La Crosse" and "What's Buried on Brad's Desk."
