Former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer just got a gig on NY1, a 24-hour news channel covering the New York City metropolitan area. He’ll be joining NY1’s Inside City Hall as a “Wise Guy.” The program offers political coverage. Spitzer will be joining former Mayor Ed Koch and former Senator Al D’Amato.
As New York’s Attorney General from 1999 to 2006, Spitzer made a name for himself for bringing huge cases against Wall Street, which earned him the nickname “The Sheriff of Wall Street.”
Spitzer became Governor of New York in 2007.
A year later, he stepped down in disgrace after he got exposed for enjoying the services of prostitutes.
According to NY1, Spitzer’s first day on the job is Tuesday, July 10.
