Toronto's disgraced Mayor Rob Ford is set to hit the airwaves on Thursday when he begins a weekly stint on a Washington sports radio station.
Ford, a household name in the United States since he acknowledged using crack cocaine, will talk American football on WJFK-FM, the CBS affiliate said Wednesday.
"Notorious Toronto Mayor Rob Ford will be joining us starting tomorrow at 8:40 to pick NFL games," tweeted John-Paul Flaim, a co-host of the station's Sports Junkies morning drive-time show.
Toronto has no National Football League team, but its ice hockey Maple Leafs, basketball Raptors and baseball Blue Jays regularly play in the US capital.
Ford, a populist and fiscal conservative who once described himself as "300 pounds of fun," admitted on November 5 that he had smoked crack cocaine in what he called a "drunken stupor."
The controversial Canadian subsequently faced unproven allegations of drunken hell-raising, used obscene language in public while denying a sexual harassment charge and accidentally knocked a female Toronto councillor to the ground during a heated debate.
He suffered a major blow later in November when Toronto city council stripped him of the bulk of his powers and duties, although he still holds the office of mayor.
