Tom Emmer Exits KTCN To Run For Congress

CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KTCN-A (TWIN CITIES NEWS-TALK)/MINNEAPOLIS morning "DAVIS AND EMMER" co-host TOM EMMER has announced his bid for the Congressional seat being vacated by MICHELE BACHMANN (R-MN), and that meant his abrupt departure from the station on FRIDAY (6/7).
OM GREGG SWEDBERG told the MINNEAPOLIS STAR-TRIBUNE, "This hit us fairly quickly. We were caught by surprise. We're hammering out different ideas, including leaving BOB (DAVIS) alone, teaming him up with someone else, or doing something completely different." SWEDBERG said that he didn't think the station had an equal-time problem because the campaign has not yet started, but "part of the reason we're not going beyond FRIDAY is that we didn't want to get into that."
