Updated 12:18 p.m.
Former Congressman John Sweeney will do a daily radio show on a local AM radio station.
The one-hour show will air weekdays at 11 a.m. on TALK1300, according to an announcement from the station.
Sweeney served eight years in the House of Representatives from New York's 20th Congressional District and was regarded as a rising star in the Republican Party. He lost a bid for re-election in 2006 to Kirsten Gillibrand, who went on to become a U.S. senator.
