Sports columnist Bob Kravitz made his television debut Monday morning on WTHR Sunrise.

"The last time I saw 6 o'clock in the morning, I was just getting back from a bar in Sochi," Kravitz joked. "So, this is not normal for me."

Kravitz will write 4-5 columns a week for wthr.com, as well as make television appearances on shows like the Pat McAfee Show and WTHR's Sports Jam.

"Whenever they want my ugly mug on TV, I'll be glad to do it," Kravitz said.

Expect his first column to hit wthr.com later today.
