Herman Cain to take over Neal Boortz's radio show

Boortz said he was looking forward to retirement but would regret signing off after more than four decades on the air. The show will likely remain based in Atlanta, where Cain also lives; the Republican politician hosted a radio show in the city from 2008 to 2011.

“I’m going to miss everything associated with doing a talk show,” Boortz said.

Cain has hinted strongly that he is interested in resuming his media career since being forced from the presidential race late last year amid allegations of sexual impropriety.

"The doors to radio or TV, those doors are open," Cain told Fox News in December. "I'm considering all of these options because I want to create the biggest platform for me to be talking about the trifecta: replacing the tax code with 9-9-9, energy independence and national security."
