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.
