The former CBS News producer who went to prison for attempting to blackmail David Letterman in 2009 has a new job in television, TVNewser reports.

Joe Halderman, who was released from prison in late 2010, joins the staff of the Investigation Discovery program "On the Case with Paula Zahn," according to the story. In his first producing gig since his release, he will reportedly be assigned to studio work and will not be in the field.

With the network’s prior approval, the team has brought Halderman on as a producer for ‘On The Case.’ We are confident that Halderman will make significant contributions to the success of our award-winning investigative newsmagazine.”
