Gov. Pawlenty to end his WCCO-AM radio show Nov. 12

Gov. Tim Pawlenty will air his final radio show on Nov. 12, about seven weeks before he leaves office.

The governor has hosted the Friday morning show since 2003, with a break during the election season of 2006 when he ran for re-election. He’s not seeking re-election this year but is widely expected to announce a run for president. Repeated trips to Iowa, New Hampshire and other key presidential states have fueled the speculation. And he has a book coming out.

He and his wife, Mary Pawlenty, will host the show together Friday from 9 to 10 a.m. on WCCO-AM, 830.

    It only makes sense as Pawlenty has not only made himself irrelevent in Minnesota by disappering when the going got tough, but WCCO is watching his approval rating reach unbelievable lows. That can’t be good for the “The Good Neighbor”. Who wants to listen to the man that led the assault on Minnesota’s quality of life and then disappeared to let other’s pick up the pieces.

    His power is slipping. His refusal to cooperate
    with a discussion of health insurance exchanges in advance of the implementation of the health reform bill is under attack from state health executives. See today’s Strib.
