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.
