Traficant lands a part-time job on radio



Published: Tue, January 5, 2010 @ 5:00 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Ex-U.S. Rep. James A. Traficant Jr. has signed a management deal and landed a paid job as a Saturday afternoon talk show on one of Cleveland’s largest radio stations.

The radio show, to air 1-4 p.m. on Saturdays, is “only the beginning,” said George Saadi, a Liberty native who operates Ace’s Choice Entertainment in Los Angeles. Saadi is co-managing Traficant with Bill Aucoin, who owns the New York City-based Aucoin Globe.

Traficant’s first show on WTAM, 1100 AM, is Saturday. Traficant signed a three-month contract with WTAM with a clause that lets him out of the deal if he decides to run for Congress, said Dennis Malloy, his director of communications. Feb. 18 is the filing deadline to run in the May 4 primary.

The WTAM program is “the first step in the puzzle for a syndicated radio show,” Malloy said.

I hope he has an experienced agent. He needs to be sure he has accurate information and does not just shoot from the hip. He has a wonderful opportunity to speak for all of us that are just average Americans.

And you want to know why all these other countries laugh at us. Where else can you be elected Statesman, get convicted, serve prison time, and then get out and be canonized. I guess Crime DOES pay.
