Tim Benz, co-host of the Morning Show on alternative rock radio station 105.9 The X, said he'll return to the show Wednesday.

“I will be back on the air,” Benz tweeted Tuesday. “Thanks to all of you who have reached out lately. I'll have more to say in the morning.”

Benz left the air Friday after arguing with listeners about his support of stricter gun laws. He declined to say more than his tweet.

“This was a radio station issue,” he said. “So I think it should be addressed first on the air.”

Benz is the husband of Kate Benz, a social columnist for the Tribune-Review.
