David McCoy: 'Today is my last day at WCCO'

The University of Minnesota grad started at WCCO-TV in 2013.

The ever-changing media scene in the Twin Cities has lost another mainstay as WCCO reporter David McCoy has left the TV station. 

McCoy announced that Monday is his final day at WCCO-TV. 

"News about me: Today is my last day at WCCO. I'm excited to be taking a new opportunity in the business world," McCoy said in a tweet

"To everyone who has watched, followed, and interacted with me these last (nearly) 7 years at Ch4, thank you. It has been a real honor to tell this community's stories."

McCoy, a sports reporter and producer for WCCO-TV, joined the station in 2013. During his time there, McCoy worked primarily as a reporter in the field, including covering the MLB All-Star Game at Target Field and following the Vikings to London for a game against the Steelers in 2013. 

McCoy won three regional Emmy awards in his seven years, including awards for Best Sports Reporter, Best Sports News Series, and Best Sports News Story. 

McCoy is a native of Sheboygan, Wisconsin, and previously worked at TV stations in Indiana, South Dakota and Iowa. 

It's not yet clear who WCCO-TV has tabbed to replace McCoy.
