John Hanson is stepping down from his post as the host of “Twin Cities Live,” the local talk show on Minneapolis ABC affiliate KSTP.
Hanson, who has hosted the show since its launch in 2008, is moving to Kansas City, where he will be the program director at a sports radio station.
“This was the most difficult decision of my career. I’ve been part of Twin Cities Live, before it was called Twin Cities Live. To be on TV in front of family and friends in my hometown every day was incredibly special,” Hanson said in a statement.
Hanson’s last show will be December 21. The station says a search for his replacement “begins immediately.”
