A Chicago radio station is offering embattled Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich a new job.
During a show early Thursday, the program director at WLS-AM announced that if Blagojevich resigns, the station will offer him his own weekly radio program from noon to 2 p.m. on Sundays.
Program director Bob Shomper said the station is asking the governor to spare the state the embarrassment and expense of forcibly removing him from office.
Blagojevich has been impeached by the state House and faces an impeachment trial in the Senate starting Monday that could end with his removal.
Shomper says the station's offer reflects the will of the people, who he says want the governor gone.
Messages left for the governor's spokesman were not immediately returned Thursday.
