Cuprisin, 51, wrote the popular "Inside TV and Radio" column for 15 years at the Milwaukee Journal, and later, at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

"We're looking forward to Tim joining our OnMilwaukee.com editorial staff," said Andy Tarnoff, publisher and co founder. "His experience, contacts and established reader base are great assets to our magazine as we continue to provide the city's best lifestyle and entertainment coverage."
"I'm excited to join the staff of OnMilwaukee.com, an enthusiastic crew of journalists who cover Milwaukee with an immediacy that only the Internet can offer. And Time Warner Cable's involvement is just the icing on the cake," said Cuprisin.
Time Warner Cable plays a key role in this unique partnership, providing a multimedia focus for Cuprisin's content.
