This week, Tony Clark, who serves as the reporter about town on WITI-TV Fox 6 mid-morning show "Real Milwaukee," announced he was leaving the station.
Clark, who grew up in Milwaukee, moved back to the area when "Real Milwaukee" was launched in 2010. At that time, he was working at Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky, Ohio, and that is where he will return.

"I have two loves in this world, one is roller coasters and the other is television," Clark said. "You can take the kid out of the amusement park, but you can’t take the amusement park out of the kid."
Clark will stay on in the roving role until the end of the May sweep. Multimedia journalist Chip Brewster will be taking over reporting duties on "Real Milwaukee" in a few weeks.
"Milwaukee is still my home and I’ll be back to visit. I love Milwaukee and everyone I’ve met," Clark said.
