Tiger King star Joseph Maldonado-Passage, better known as Joe Exotic, is in discussions to have his own radio show in prison.

Mr Maldonado-Passage’s husband, Dillon Passage, told Metro UK that a radio station has approached him to broadcast a show from prison.

“This radio station here in the US wants him to have his own radio show from inside the prison,” he said.


“So we’ll see what happens with that. It’s kind of mind-blowing,” Mr Passage added.

Mr Maldonado-Passage is currently serving 22 years at a federal prison in Fort Worth, Texas, after being convicted in 2019 of two counts of murder to hire and 17 counts of animal abuse.

Earlier this month, his husband told Andy Cohen’s US radio show that he was moved to a different facility after a coronavirus outbreak at the prison.

“We speak three to five times every day,” Mr Passage said. “But since he’s been moved to this new facility, they are putting him on a COVID-19 isolation because of the previous jail he was at — there were cases,” he said.

Mr Passage revealed to Metro on Tuesday that he’s now been able to talk to his husband, but that Mr Maldonado-Passage “wishes he could talk more. He doesn’t really get phone call privileges mainly because he’s still in isolation for the coronavirus stuff.”

“His test results did come back negative for the virus,” Mr Passage added.

According to a tracking project hosted by Johns Hopkins University, the US has upwards of 613,187 people have tested positive for coronavirus. The death toll has reached at least 26,950.
