Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich can add ‘talk show host’ to his resume as he continues to host Sunday afternoons at The Big 89, WLS-AM. The past two Sundays, Blagojevich shared his insights and opinions on-the-air with WLS listeners. Station management has announced that he will continue to host a two hour talk show Sundays on WLS 890 AM from 12noon to 2pm.
Since his controversial ousting from office, Blagojevich has become a national celebrity who has appeared on TV news channels and programs such as NBC’s ‘Today’ show, ABC’s ‘The View’ and cable news outlets. He was invited and planned to compete on NBC’s ‘I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here’ reality show this summer. But when he could not go, his wife Patti, the former first lady of Illinois, went in his place. She came in fourth place and was a fan favorite.
