Traficant to host radio talk show in Cleveland
CLEVELAND — A former congressman who spent seven years in federal prison for corruption will host a weekly radio show in Cleveland.
WTAM-AM 1100 said Thursday that Jim Traficant’s program will start Saturday.
Traficant, of suburban Youngstown, says he has much to talk about on issues facing Ohio and the United States.
Traficant was elected as a Democrat to nine terms before he was convicted in 2002 of bribery and racketeering. He was released from prison in September and has said he is considering running for Congress again.
WTAM Program Director Ray Davis says Traficant has been a guest host on a handful of radio shows since his release.
The station is owned by San Antonio-based Clear Channel Radio.
