KSTP-TV reporter Mark Albert is leaving the station after eight years on the air, the Pioneer Press reports.

Albert is leaving the station Aug. 21 after his contract expires.

The reporter won a prestigious Peabody Award for "Who Killed Doc?" which was an investigative series about a Minnesota sailor's death in Iraq. In addition to his local reporting, Albert has done reports from Kuwait, Kenya, Pakistan and Mexico.

A California native, Albert, 35, graduated from the University of Southern California and previously worked at stations in his home state and in Michigan.

Albert doesn't have another job lined up yet, but tells the Pioneer Press he's staying in broadcasting.

He called his time at KSTP "a great run," and added that after eight years, "it's time for a new challenge."
