Fired U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara will be partnering up with WNYC Studios, a subsidiary of New York Public Radio, to launch a weekly show called “Stay Tuned With Preet,” reports News India Times.

President Trump fired Bharara in March, even though Trump had originally asked Bharara to stay on in his post.

On the show, Bharara “will offer commentary on our judicial, political and cultural systems” which he has already been doing through Twitter.

“I understand @realDonaldTrump may have called the White House a ‘dump.’ That’s not in the top 500 things to be outraged about. Seriously,” Bharara wrote a few days ago on the social media site.

Bharara was the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York for more than seven years. Within those years he became known for prosecuting high-profile cases involving Wall Street insider trading, public corruption and terrorism.
