Steve Chamraz Leaves Chicago for Milwaukee’s WTMJ


By Andrew Gauthier Comment

Steve Chamraz has left his post at Chicago’s WFLD to become an anchor and reporter at Milwaukee’s WTMJ.  Chamraz had been working as a reporter for the Chicago Fox-affiliate since 2008.

“Can’t wait to get settled into my new home in Milwaukee,” Chamraz posted Tuesday on his newly launched Facebook page.

Chamraz is set to join the station on February 21 and will take over the afternoon anchor chair vacated by George Mallet in December, according to OnMilwaukee. In addition to anchoring the daytime newscast, Chamraz will report for the 10 p.m. news.

With the move to WTMJ, Chamraz is returning to the city where he started his career.  He graduated from Marquette University and had his first TV news internship with the NBC-affiliate.
