    John Rowland has resigned from his WTIC AM radio show, effective immediately.

    He made the announcement at the end of his show tonight.

    The radio station released a statement, saying he would be “leaving his show to take care of some personal issues.”

    This comes two days after Gov. Dannel Malloy said he believes former Gov. Rowland should be taken off his afternoon radio show in light of a new corruption scandal, but Rowland was on the air on Tuesday afternoon.

    On Tuesday, Rowland said he would not be discussing the federal probe.

    The former candidate, Lisa Wilson-Foley, and her husband, Brian Foley, pleaded guilty in a scheme that authorities say involved creating a fictitious contract for work with Foley's nursing home company.
    Rowland resigned as governor amid another scandal in 2004.

    “We accept Mr. Rowland’s decision to step down at this time.  Pastor Will will take over the 3-6 show beginning on Monday,” a statement from the station says.
