Rowland Leaves Radio Talk Show
Former Connecticut Governor John G. Rowland announced Thursday that he's stepping down from his afternoon talk show on WTIC 1080. He ended his show by saying, “Today will be my last show, as I’m leaving the station to take care of some personal issues.”
Rowland thanked listeners for their loyalty and said he’d "take it from there."
WTIC's program director confirmed the station had accepted Rowland's "decision to step down at this time."
On Monday, former congressional candidate Lisa Wilson-Foley and her husband pleaded guilty in an off-the-books scheme to pay Rowland for campaign consulting work.
Rowland has not been charged with any crimes.
He resigned as governor in 2004 amid another scandal and served ten months in prison on a corruption-related charge.
