Matt Brickman announced Monday that his last day at WCCO-TV in the Twin Cities will be Aug. 20, as he's moving to New York after accepting a job with WNBC. 

"After eight years, August 20th will be my last day on WCCO," Brickman said in a tweet. "I’ve accepted a job at WNBC in New York City. WCCO is a special place. The community that exists among alumni & staff is rare to find anywhere - not just television."

Brickman serves as the weekday morning meteorologist for WCCO. It's not yet clear what his role at WNBC in New York will be. 

"The impending change has made me more introspective than usual. I’ve been thinking a lot about all Minnesota has given Kate & me," Brickman added. "Our family grew with the birth of two amazing boys. I made more friends than I had stopped to realize. Minnesota became our home."

The move to the East Coast will bring Brickman closer to home, as he's a native of Windsor, Connecticut. 

WCCO has not announced plans regarding Brickman's replacement. Other meteorologists at WCCO include Chris Shaffer, Katie Steiner, Lisa Meadows and Mike Augustyniak.
