Julian Assange said he is looking into the possibility of guest hosting Sean Hannity's nationally-syndicated conservative radio show, CNN reported.
Assange made the statement in a Twitter direct message Wednesday after Hannity posted an invitation to the embattled WikiLeaks founder, CNN said.
"If you would like to fill in for me one day I am on over 550 stations and 14 plus million listeners," the Fox News host tweeted to Assange.
"I'm looking into it. My physical circumstances means that nothing is easy," Assange said, according to CNN.
Assange has remained inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London for about five years, The Guardian reported. Last month, Swedish prosecutors dropped a seven-year investigation of Assange over allegations of rape.
However, Sweden's director of public prosecution, Marianne Ny, said the investigation could resume if Assange makes himself available before the statute of limitations on the case expires in August 2020.
Hannity, who once accused Assange of "waging war" against the U.S., began praising him after WikiLeaks published emails from the Democratic National Committee and the chairman of Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign, CNN noted.
Wednesday's discussion about Assange filling in for Hannity followed an earlier Twitter post in which Assange said several networks suggested he host a weekly radio broadcast.
