STEUBENVILLE, OHIO (AP) - Former Ohio congressman Bob Ney (nay) has started a new talk radio show, eight months after finishing his sentence in a public corruption scandal.

Ney’s show debuted Monday afternoon on WVLY-AM 1370 in Wheeling, W.Va., which also serves eastern Ohio. He discussed the pirate hostage crisis, the economy and the Obamas’ new dog.

In a video posted on the station’s Web site, Ney says he expects some negative feedback from listeners because of his conviction in a congressional bribery case.

The six-term Republican resigned after acknowledging in a 2006 plea that he traded political favors for gifts and campaign donations arranged by lobbyist Jack Abramoff and his associates.

Ney was released in August from a Cincinnati halfway house.
