As part of his long good-bye to the governor's office, Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty announced Thursday that Nov. 12 would be his last Friday morning radio show on WCCO.
Pawlenty's office said he has told WCCO management of his decision to end the show next month. Pawlenty term as governor will end in January 2011, the same month his bio book will appear.
The WCCO radio silence likely won't mean Pawlenty silence in the media. He has said he will announce whether he will run for president in early 2011 but has given every sign the oval office is in his plans.
The WCCO show, which Pawlenty appears to really enjoy, has been a must-listen for political reporters -- and it even, occasionally, makes news.
