Ex-Gov. David Paterson was off and quipping Tuesday on the first day of his eponymous WOR radio show, telling first guest and former boss Eliot Spitzer: “I finally got a job you didn't have to give me."
Taking the airwaves to New York classics such as Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York" and Jay-Z's "Empire State of Mind," Paterson said he was "more excited right now, sitting here, than I was even the day I was sworn in as governor.
Spitzer and Paterson talk politics, economics and jobs, and exchanged high praise for one another.
“You’re going to be Jerry Seinfeld and Dan Rather, all put together in one,” Spitzer told Paterson, who showed off the affable personality he honed during his years in politics.
His other guests included Mets player Nick Evans and dueling pols Bob Turner and Assemblyman David Weprin, who are vying for the House seat vacated by the disgraced Anthony Weiner.
