WASHINGTON (AP) — Disgraced Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff has a new talk radio show to offer advice on reforming politics.

Premiere Networks, part of Clear Channel Media, announced Wednesday that “The Jack Abramoff Show” has debuted on XM Satellite Radio’s “Talk Radio” channel. It airs Sundays from 5 to 8 p.m.

Abramoff went to federal prison for corruption. He says he may be the nation’s “most controversial radio host” because he was involved in the money-based political culture he says needs an overhaul.

Producers say the Washington-based show offers the unique perspective of a political insider. It’s being produced by the same unit that features Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Ryan Seacrest and other personalities.

Abramoff was released from prison in 2010, then spent six months working at a Baltimore pizzeria.
