No radio show for Dayton; Gov. nixes offers
the Business Journal reports.
Well, the offers weren't exactly like the ones his predecessors got. 830 AM WCCO hosted hour-long shows at 9 a.m. Fridays with Minnesota governors for Jesse Ventura and Tim Pawlenty.
For Dayton, the station offered 7 a.m. on Saturdays and four minutes at 6:20 a.m. on Fridays — "the radio equivalent of garbage time," as MinnPost media blogger David Brauer put it. WCCO execs disputed that assessment and said they were surprised that Dayton turned them down.
Dayton also rejected proposals from Minnesota News Network, KFAI-FM and JR Broadcasting.
