While he's a criminal defendant in court, Rod Blagojevich will not be as radio show host on Sunday mornings, WLS-AM officials announced this morning.
They say they won't run the program while Blagojevich's corruption trial is underway.
The trial begins with jury selection tomorrow.
WLS announced Blagojevich's radio respite during his appearance on the "Don Wade and Roma Morning Show," this morning.
On the show, Blagojevich said he's looking forward to taking the stand and reiterated that he never intended to sell the Senate seat. He said he planned to "hold his nose" and appoint Lisa Madigan, the son of his political nemesis, in exchange for the passage of a legislative package.
