If you've been missing the lilting sound of former Gov. Rod Blagojevich's voice, weep no longer.

Rod's hitting the airwaves this morning.

His publicist says he'll take calls, talk with guests, and tell stories for two hours starting at 7 a.m. as the fill-in host of the "Don Wade & Roma Morning Show" on WLS-AM (890 AM).

Scheduled guests include comedian D.L. Hughley, host of 'D.L. Hughley Breaks the News,' and actors that star in the Second City musical 'Rod Blagojevich Superstar,' a spoof on the former governor.

It's a one-time deal, apparently, WLS-AM program director Bob Shomper said.  The regular hosts are off this week.

In January, WLS offered Blagojevich his own weekend radio show if he agreed to resign as governor. Blagojevich didn't take the station up on that offer, and he was later ousted from office by Illinois lawmakers.

Blagojevich faces federal corruption charges that accuse him of attempting to sell President Barack Obama's former U.S. Senate seat, among other things. He denies any wrongdoing.
