Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich has a new gig -- as a Chicago radio host.
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.
Among the guests, reports Chris Jones in Theater Loop on chicagotribune.com, are members of the cast of Second City's "Rod Blagojevich Superstar," a production that spoofs the former governor.
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.
Blagojevich faces federal corruption charges that accuse him of attempting to sell President Barack Obama's former U.S. Senate seat, among other things. He denies any wrongdoing.
