Blago WLS Fill-In Draws Attention

Former ILLINOIS Governor ROD BLAGOJEVICH's fill in for DON WADE AND ROMA at CITADEL Talk WLS-A/CHICAGO WEDNESDAY morning drew national media attention, with the impeached politician claiming that he was "hijacked" from office and ripping his successor, PAT QUINN, for a proposed tax increase.
On the show, which aired 7-9a CT this morning, BLAGOJEVICH took a sympathetic call from celebrity guest D. L. HUGHLEY and joked that hosting a radio show is "harder than being governor." He also discussed writing a book about his experience and mostly avoided talking about his legal challenge, saying that he would rely on the truth and "the truth shall set you free."
BLAGOJEVICH was impeached after the scandal involving his alleged "selling" of the Senate seat vacated by President OBAMA. He has been a guest on WLS several times since his exit from office.
