Lanpher leaving Minnesota Public Radio

Katherine Lanpher is leaving Minnesota Public Radio according to an news release.

Lanpher hosted Midmorning, which airs from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on all Minnesota Public Radio news and information stations, for the last time today. Her spot will be filled by interim hosts, including Minnesota Public Radio's Kate Smith, until her successor is named.

The Twincities Business Journal reported this afternoon that Lanpher is joining a new liberal-leaning daily radio talkshow with comedian/commentator Al Franken to be broadcast from New York.
