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.
