Tim Blotz

“Can I get you a Coke”? Tim is the healthiest guy we know that still guzzles real Coca-Cola. He wears a couple of hats here at FOX 9. He’s fascinated by politics, and has been on the State Capitol beat for several years now. Tim also anchors FOX 9’s evening newscasts on Friday and Saturday with his on and off air buddy Karen Scullin. Tim is too modest to say this, so we will: he’s a true gentleman.
