WASHINGTON (CNN) – Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich will be back on the airwaves Wednesday, serving as a fill-in host on a Chicago talk radio station.
Blagojevich will host the Don Wade and Roma Morning Show on WLS-AM - a show the station refers to as "the most positive, optimistic radio show in the universe" - alone from 7-9 am Wednesday. The station confirmed to CNN that the gig is a one-time occurrence.
Before he was ousted from office, WLS-AM had offered the former governor his own radio show on Sundays if he agreed to voluntarily step down. Blagojevich, who didn't take the deal, was later impeached over allegations that he tried to sell President Obama's vacant Senate seat.
why did they still give him a radio show if he didn't voluntarily step down? they should have made him Governor of Antarctica!!!
What became of his criminal trial? is there any pendin'? We are eagerly waitin' for his wherewithals in tryin' to win a wide range of people in the whole white world, we reckon, perhaps?
Oh good god no! I think we have heard enough from him.
It is sad when somebody is convicted of wrong-doing is awarded. I guess it proves it doesn't matter what you do as long as you know the right people.
I, and I hope many others, will begin tuning into WGN.
And Rush Limbaugh is right there in the Prme Time Lime Up. Should anyone care what this station puts on the airways with the likes of that on its program list. Would never bother to even listen to this junk.
I thought that Rod B. was in Jail.
ONLY in America would this idiot be hired on a radio show.
But hey...... when you have people like Hannity, Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, etc. It ALL makes sense.
Americans love suffering from their own "self-inflicted" wounds while blaming everyone else.
outward appearances make guy look pretty bad,( thanks to the press doing their job?), but he was the one who wouldn't do business with Bank of America, (remember them), why, because he knew where they were coming from..
