Larry Jacobs adds to praise for Gary Eichten of MPR, who is retiring after 45 years in the newsroom.
Larry Jacobs of the University of Minnesota's Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs has been a regular guest on the show. He said with Eichten at the helm, Midday has become vital for the political health of Minnesota. Jacobs, director of the institute's Center for the Study of Politics and Governance, likens the show to an old time pharmacy soda fountain: a place to grab a drink and chew over the issues of the day with your neighbors.
