Texas native Randy Harvey is returning home.
The Los Angeles Times associate editor is leaving the newspaper to become a featured sports columnist for the Houston Chronicle.
Harvey started at the LAT as a reporter in 1981, working his way up the ranks to become a columnist in 1996 and senior assistant editor four years later.
The Baltimore Sun managed to lure Harvey away for a two-year stint as assistant managing editor before returning to the LAT in 2006 as sports editor.
“I’ve been suppressing my inner Oscar Madison. After 12 years behind a desk in management, I’m letting him free,” Harvey told LA Observed via email.
