KMSP morning anchor Jason Matheson is leaving the Minneapolis FOX affiliate for his radio show.
According the StarTribune, the convergence of Matheson and FOX not being able to reach a deal and a better time slot for his radio show prompted the move.
While working at KMSP, Matheson has been co-host of “The Jason & Alexis Show” on 107.1 FM weekdays from Noon to 3:00 p.m. for the last four years. The show is moving to the morning drive time of 5:30 to 9:00 a.m. on Monday, March 4.
Matheson, who has been at KMSP for 12 years, started with the station as executive producer of the entertainment show “The Buzz” which he now hosts.
His last day with KMSP will be Thursday, February 28.[Bring Me The News][Minneapolis St. Paul Business Journal]
