Sean Owsley’s plan to retire from anchoring KHQ newcasts didn’t last long.

Owsley took to Twitter Friday afternoon to announce he’ll be anchoring a new, weekday evening newscast called “The 6:30” that will focus on the reopening economy starting June 1.

He had planned to step down from anchoring KHQ’s morning show after 18 years at the end of May in order to spend more time with family. Then came the opportunity to anchor the 6:30 p.m. time slot.

“I can’t tell you how much your support and personal messages have meant to me. I was born here. I belong here,” Owsley wrote in a tweet. “Thanks a million for reaching out to me, for your kindness, and for trusting me over my 27-year career in broadcasting!! I don’t take that lightly!”
