(Newser) – America’s Mayor may return to the radio waves, according to the New York Post, which reports that Rudy Giuliani is the leading candidate to succeed Bill O’Reilly when he leaves his syndicated show. Giuliani's camp isn't commenting, but Hizzoner has some experience being blunt behind the mike—he mocked a ferret owner as “deranged” during his last turn on the airwaves in 1999. Still unresolved is how a radio gig might affect his possible 2010 gubernatorial campaign.
