There are more ins and outs at Twin Cities TV stations

KSTP is losing a reporter, while WCCO is bringing one in.

There are more moves being made in the Twin Cities TV market, with KSTP bidding farewell to one of its reporters, while WCCO welcomes home a Minnesota native.

Josh Rosenthal announced that after more than five years at KSTP 5 Eyewitness News, he has accepted a job in Washington D.C.

Rosenthal, a D.C. native who joined the Twin Cities' ABC affiliate in 2013, had his last day on our screens on Tuesday, and will start at WTTG in the nation's capital on Sept. 10.

"Thanks for everything, Minnesota," he wrote on Twitter. "When DC shuts down b/c of 2” of snow, I’ll even miss the winters."

Rosenthal had previously worked as a reporter at FOX16 in Little Rock, Arkansas, and as an anchor at WCJB in Gainesville, Florida.

While Rosenthal is saying goodbye to Minnesota, Katie Steiner is celebrating a homecoming.

The TV reporter and weather specialist announced on Tuesday she's accepted a job at WCCO, where she'll report on weekend mornings.

She will also help out the weather team that includes Mike Augustyniak, Matt Brickman and Lisa Meadows when she's needed.

For Steiner, it means a return to the state she grew up in having spent almost two years in New Orleans as a freelance reporter for WWL-TV.

Prior to that, she spent just over a year as a marketing officer for the Academy of Holy Angels in Minneapolis, after spending three years in Spokane, Washington, where she was a weekend weather anchor/reporter.

She will start at WCCO on Sept. 4. You can follow her on Twitter here.
