matheson_croppedJason Matheson left his TV job for radio last February. Now he’s announced he’s coming back to local TV and is joining Minneapolis CBS owned station WCCO.

The Pioneer Press reports Matheson will contribute live reports to the 5:00 and occasionally the 6:00 p.m. shows as well as taped pieces for the morning show.

“I’m so excited,” Matheson told the Pioneer Press. “It was always the plan to come back to TV and mentally it was always the plan to go back to ‘CCO.”

Matheson started his career at WCCO. He worked for KMSP in Minneapolis for more than a decade before leaving when his radio show¬†on MyTalk 107.1 FM switched to mornings. According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Matheson’s non-compete contract with KMSP expired March 1.

Matheson said he will continue to host his radio show.
