Five months ago he revealed he was stepping away from the anchor's desk, now Bill Lunn is leaving KSTP altogether.

The former prime-time anchor-turned reporter confirmed on his Facebook page that Thursday was his last day at the Twin Cities ABC affiliate.

Describing his departure as "bittersweet" after nine years with the station, he says that "in the end we could not figure out a new role for me here."

Lunn was moved from the prime-time anchor spot he had held since 2009 this past October, revealing his "new assignment" would be as a field reporter covering "special reports, investigations, and continuing to cover military and veterans stories and issues."

The Star Tribune reports the Minnesota native attended St. Mary's University in Winona and was formerly a broadcaster in Duluth, but is now mulling his next move.

"I am not sure what I am going to do next, but I would love to stay in TV news and would love to stay home in Minnesota."
