Rob Ford 106.7 The Fan weekly segment

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford eats during the first half of an NFL football game between the Atlanta Falcons and the Buffalo Bills.

Embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is headed to D.C. sports talk radio, beginning this week.

According to a report in POLITICO, Ford will make a weekly appearance on 106.7 FM The Fan to make NFL picks and talk sports with the hosts of the station's "Sports Junkies" morning show.

Ford likely has more time on his hands after being stripped of much of his mayoral powers by the Toronto city council following a turbulent and much-publicized stretch in which he admitted to smoking crack after making repeated denials.

Ford will make his first appearance this Thursday at 8:40 a.m.
