It’s the end of an era. Dale Connolly and Jim Ed Poole’s (Tom Keith) Morning Show on MPR is ending.
The two announced today the last show will air on December 11. “It’s part of the natural order of things,” Dale announced on the air this morning.
“I checked my driver’s license and found it was almost time to retire,” Jim Ed said. And so he will.
Dale said he’s “been offered the opportunity to find something else at MPR.”
