Nighttime news anchor Brad Hicks has left WITI-TV in Milwaukee after more than 15 years at the station.

A statement from the station said Hicks decided to “step away and focus on his family.”

“As many people may know, Brad’s brother and parents in California all face difficult health challenges,” the statement read. “We at FOX 6 have known for some time that Brad may need to leave us to help care for these family members.”

Hicks had a 30 year career anchoring newscasts. He joined WITI in 2004.
