Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich has a new gig -- as a Chicago radio host.Heh! I didn't have time to post this before I had to dart off to class this morning and I see that Rich Miller makes a simple statemen on his blog today, "WLS loses its mind". LOL!
WLS-AM program director Bob Shomper says Blagojevich will be on the air from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. Wednesday, taking calls from listeners, telling stories and talking with guests.
Shomper says it's a one-time deal in the slot normally filled by the "Don Wade & Roma Morning Show." The regular hosts are off this week.
In January, WLS offered Blagojevich his own weekend radio show if he agreed to resign as governor. Blagojevich didn't take the station up on that offer, and he was later ousted from office by Illinois lawmakers.
Well this is certain to bring some ratings and hopefully a new career given the fact that he isn't likely to return to politics anytime soon. Although I hate to see what kind of calls he'll get, but he'll love this as this could get him some more attention. Almost as if he craves it and has no shame in how he got it!
That last paragraph in the excerpt. Well that had to be noted, but he was too stubborn to just give up the job he seemed to want to give up in the first place for a much more better paying gig. He ultimate was "fired" from that gig in Springfield. :P
