WXYZ Detroit Anchor Stephen Clark To Retire
Anchor Stephen Clark of Scripps-owned ABC affiliate WXYZ Detroit (DMA 14) will retire at the end of February. Clark has been a 7 Action News anchor and multiplatform journalist for 16 years.
“Stephen has been a valued member of the 7 Action News team and has made a tremendous impact on our station and the Detroit community,” said Mike Murri, WXYZ-WMYD VP-GM. “In addition to reporting and anchoring our news each night, Stephen has been an integral part of all our signature events, including the North American International Auto Show, Detroit Grand Prix, Woodward Dream Cruise and the Campus Martius tree lighting. We wish Stephen the very best as he begins this exciting new chapter of his life. We will most certainly miss him here at Channel 7.”
Clark’s career in broadcast journalism spans more than four decades, including anchoring at KCNC Denver, KGTV San Diego and WCBS in New York. He was a correspondent for CBS at the time of the 9/11 attack, and covered every aspect of the event.
WXYZ and WMYD will celebrate Clark’s career and his many contributions to broadcasting in the coming months.
