Herman Cain, the one-time Republican presidential candidate, will begin hosting a nationally syndicated radio talk show in January, his syndication company said Monday.
Mr. Cain’s talk show will be offered to stations in place of “The Neal Boortz Show,” which will end at the same time. Mr. Boortz said Monday that he was retiring from his show, which has been broadcast in one form or another for 42 years.
Mr. Cain’s show, which as yet has no title, is a natural segue for him. He had hosted a similar show for WSB, a station in Atlanta, before running for president last year and briefly becoming the Republican primary front-runner. While on the campaign trail, Mr. Cain, who conducted a book tour at the same time, repeatedly had to dispel speculation that he was running for president merely to “get a TV show or a book deal.”
“I’ve got books already,” he said at one campaign stop in October. “I don’t want a TV show. I want to help save this nation from the direction it’s going.”
