Scandal-scorched ex-Gov. David Paterson will get to turn the spotlight on others with his own afternoon drivetime radio show on WOR-AM, the Daily News has learned.
“The David Paterson Show” will be announced formally Thursday at a Manhattan news conference, sources close to Paterson said.
The engaging former governor has been filling in regularly for WOR morning host John Gambling since leaving office last year.
An avid Mets fan, Paterson has also guest-hosted programs on WFAN sports radio.
A Paterson spokesman could not be reached for comment, while WOR had no comment.
The affable Paterson had a scandal-plagued tenure as New York’s first black governor and first blind governor, enduring ethical and legal investigations after taking over abruptly for the hooker-happy Eliot Spitzer.
Congrats sir! We’ll probably never hear your show, but we’re sure you’ll do a great job.
