ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Public Radio News is reassigning a prominent host after he disclosed his relationship with a Democratic politician.
The St. Paul-based radio station said Friday it was removing Tom Weber from his weekday morning show soon after learning of his relationship with Rep. Peggy Flanagan, a candidate for lieutenant governor.
Weber frequently discussed Minnesota politics and hosted well-known politicians during his program.
It’s unclear what role Weber will have. The radio station said in a statement that Weber would not cover the race for governor, any 2018 election material or public policy issues.
