Blago Radio Off The Air. For Now.

With his federal corruption trial slated to start, well, tomorrow (more on that later), ex-governor Rod Blagojevich has had his weekly Sunday radio show pulled from the WLS airwaves for the duration of the trial. Operations Director Drew Hayes said, "Out of respect for the legal process, WLS radio is putting the Rod Blagojevich Show on 'hiatus' effective immediately. After the trial has concluded, we will review the status of the program." But, according to Hayes, that won't stop Blagojevich from making appearances on the "Don Wade & Roma" show, as he did this morning. Well, that's a relief.
