NEW YORK (AP) - ABC says Rod Blagojevich (blah-GOY'-uh-vich), the indicted former governor of Illinois, will be a guest next month on "The View." He'll be joined by his wife, Patti.

The joint appearance is set for Sept. 9.

Blagojevich, who first appeared on the daytime talk show last January, will be promoting his new book, "The Governor."

Earlier this summer, Patti Blagojevich was a contestant on the NBC reality show "I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!"

ABC is owned by The Walt Disney Co.
