Dayton plans to do a radio show

Posted by: Rachel E. Stassen-Berger under Minnesota governor, Gov. Mark Dayton, Gov. Tim Pawlenty Updated: January 6, 2011 - 10:55 PM

Gov. Mark Dayton plans to do a governor's radio show soon.

"I wish I could be on the air somewhere tomorrow," Dayton said. "I can't wait to get on the air. It is just a question of where and going through the proper procedure.

Dayton having a weekly radio show follows a tradition of past governors. Both Govs. Jesse Ventura and Tim Pawlenty had Friday morning shows on WCCO that were required, and sometimes interesting, listening for political geeks.

It might take a bit for Dayton to join their ranks.

"We have to go through an open bidding process, competitive bidding process. I understand it took until February for Gov. Pawlenty to get on the air," Dayton said.
