If you were wondering how former Gov. Rod Blagojevich has kept quiet this long, wonder no more.
The soon-to-be retried Blagojevich is again allowed a platform to speak on WLS 890-AM. He'll host the show tomorrow from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m.
A move by the radio station that gave Blagojevich a regular show following his 2008 arrest met with some controversy. The station stripped Blagojevich of the show as his 2010 trial was underway.
On Wednesday morning, he'll just work as a fill-in for the regular "Don and Roma" show.
"The time is right, given the events in the city, the state, and the region," Michael Damsky, president and general manager of WLS-AM said in a release. "Rod Blagojevich is an undeniably Chicago character who gets people talking."
Aside from a recent stint on "The Daily Show," and an occasional speaking engagement, Blagojevich has been mum leading up to an April 20 retrial on 20 counts. That is, compared to his media deluge before his first trial.
Here's the WLS promo:
