It started at Nease High School in St. Johns County for First Coast News Investigator Clark Fouraker. After graduating from the University of Florida and working in Columbia, South Carolina, Clark is back on the First Coast and excited to be home.

Clark investigated the child welfare system in South Carolina and found policy failures led to multiple child deaths. His reporting led to a state senate investigation, policy changes, and helped force the resignation of the agency's top official.

His investigative reporting earned a 2015 DuPont Baton, awarded by Columbia University and considered one of the highest honors in television news. He's also earned a Sigma Delta Chi award from the Society of Professional Journalists and a regional Edward R. Murrow award.

When he's not working on a new investigation, Clark enjoys a good day on the water, a Bloody Mary for brunch, and anytime Florida Gator sports are on TV.

He loves hearing from people who know about something that needs to be investigated or just want to drop a line. You can contact Clark via email at or @clarkfouraker on Twitter.
