He has been on top of the news for nearly a decade and honored for it by the Wisconsin Broadcasting Association and the Robert F. Hyland/CBS Radio Award for feature reporting for nearly a decade. Klinefelter was literally on top of the news in 1996 when he interviewed then-Senator Bob Dole and stepped on his feet during the Dole/Kemp run for the Presidency.
