Last night, he was a guest on WBZ's Paul Sulivan Show.  He didn't mention any on-the-air gig, but WBZ has been scrupulous in their 
on-air censorship as of late.  Can't let profanity, the mention of a bare breast or (God Forbid) another station's call letters offend the ears of the public.  

He does appear to be involved in a company (Play It Again Videos?) that produces a videotapes of peoples lives.  It's "Your Legacy On Video Tape" or something akin to that.  He has, naturally, produced one of himself.  SOunds like vanity publishing taken to the next level.
