WLS To Blago: Quit And We'll GIve You A Show
January 22, 2009 at 5:38 PM (PT)
Embattled and impeached, ILLINOIS Gov. ROD BLAGOJEVICH has steadfastly refused to resign his position. But CITADEL Talk WLS-A/CHICAGO has made BLAGOJEVICH an offer he may not want to refuse: If he quits, the station will give him a show on SUNDAYS noon-2p CT.
PD BOB SHOMPER made the offer on DON WADE AND ROMA's morning show THURSDAY, asking the governor to spare the state the embarrassment and expense of having to forcibly remove him from office. "A talk show hosted by Gov. BLAGOJEVICH would be widely popular," said SHOMPER. "In spite of his low approval ratings, people want to hear what he has to say."
BLAGOJEVICH is being impeached by the ILLINOIS Senate after being indicted for allegedly attempting to sell the vacant Senate seat formerly held by President OBAMA. And, late THURSDAY, he agreed to appear with DON WADE AND ROMA on their show during the 7a CT hour FRIDAY (1/23).
