Former NDP Leader Tom Mulcair has landed a new gig with our sister station CJAD 800.

Starting August 28th, he'll be the station's new political analyst - on the opposite side of the spectrum from where he once stood. 

"Once you've been analyzed and looked at and commented on by other people, it gives you a sense of fair play as well," Mulcair told CTV Montreal Tuesday.

"I hope to be able to bring a sense of fair play and use my experience to share with people some observations about how things are happening in politics in Montreal, in Quebec City, and in Ottawa," he added.

Mulcair will be on-air twice a day during the week -- with Andrew Carter at 7:35 a.m., and Aaron Rand at 5:05 p.m as of the 28th. 

After Labour Day, he'll be on twice weekly with CTV News Channel.
