Tim Cuprisin, tv critic, has passed away


OnMilwaukee.com is reporting local television and radio critic, blogger, and journalist, Tim Cuprisin has passed away.

The former Milwaukee Journal Sentinel writer was one of the first local journalists to really “get” the blogging medium. He was ahead of the curve in understanding the shorter form and the back-and-forth with his readers.

He had a sense of humor about the weather-obsessed local television news. Regarding one of Scott Steele’s snow reports, Cuprisin remarked on Facebook, “If the excessive coverage stops, the terrorists win.”

Despite a different political philosophy, Cuprisin was always cordial and informative in our e-mail and Facebook exchanges. Our condolences to his family.
