After 15 years sitting at the anchor desk, Brad Hicks rather abruptly left Tribune’s WITI this week.
He’d been off the air in recent weeks.
We’re told it’s a family issue by the station and it had been anticipated.
“After much deliberation and 30 years anchoring newscasts, Brad Hicks has 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. We at FOX 6 have known for some time that Brad may need to leave us to help care for these family members. Brad feels that now is the time. Brad has made many contributions to FOX 6 in his over 15 years here. We will miss him and wish him the best.”
Hicks, whose station social media has already been dismantled, is maintaining silence.
