Pete also is a sports reporter for Comcast SportsNet Chicago and provides auto racing reports to the station. He was a reporter for CLTV for six years where he produced and hosted Victory Lane, a weekly hour-long motorsports program.

His on-air experience also includes a daily syndicated radio report, pit reporting for ASA Late Model telecasts, work for SPEED Channel, Chicago's WLS-TV (ABC) and WGN-TV.
