The Mitch Nelles Show

Mitch Nelles, aka Thunder, is a long-time resident of the Milwaukee area with some serious Wisconsin roots. Born and raised in Boston, Mitch brings a bit of a coastie attitude to his fandom. He moved to Wisconsin in 1990, where he attended Nicolet High School and the University of Wisconsin. His grandparents and the entire mother’s side of his family were born and raised in Milwaukee (yes, serious roots). Mitch has worked for the Wisconsin State Journal, the Milwaukee Bucks, and ESPN Milwaukee (serving as co-host of “Homer & Thunder”). Also very active in the community, Mitch has emceed and auctioneered events for Make-a-Wish, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, Variety of Wisconsin, Russell Wilson’s personal foundation and The Guest House, just to name a few. Mitch was in the crowd when the Red Sox won the 2004 World Series, when Wisconsin played in its first Final Four in 2014 and when Ron Roenicke inexplicably pitched Shaun Marcum in Game 6 of the NLCS in 2011.
