Comcast SportsNet's John Gonzalez announced on Twitter he's leaving Philadelphia for California.

Gonzo is going to California.

John Gonzalez, host of "The 700 Level" show on Comcast SportsNet and former sports columnist for The Philadelphia Inquirer, announced on Twitter Thursday he was moving out West to be with his wife.

His wife, Colleen Wolfe, used to be a sports anchor for Fox29 but moved to Los Angeles in 2014 to work for the NFL Network, according to the Philadelphia Daily News.

Wolfe teased Gonzalez's move on Twitter earlier Thursday.

Nicknamed Gonzo from his Inquirer days, Gonzalez told Crossing Broad when he moves he'll do some freelance work initially and explore other opportunities.

Many in the local sports world wished him well on Twitter.
