Herman Cain is taking his ridiculous ideals to radio airwaves. The one-time presidential hopeful, whose campaign was lampooned by sexual harassment and infidelity claims, will become the host of a conservative radio show. The morning show, currently helmed by Neal Boortz, is syndicated across the country, via Atlanta’s WSB radio. Cain will take over for Boortz, who announced Monday (June 4), that he will retire at the top of 2013.
Since Cain is a former host on WSB, picking up where Boortz leaves off will be a seamless transition. “We tell people the cold, hard truth and the facts,” Cain told Boortz during the show. “I want to continue to express my views and help educate people about what’s going on in this country. It’s like you say: the dumb masses are ruining this country.”
While his bid to become leader of the free world was ill-fated, the 66-year-old has experience working in several different fields. Aside from radio, he was once the CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, and attempted to use his business expertise to draft a plan to get the country out of an economic rut.
Being that he’s not very popular, received death threats, and was forced to seek protection at the hands of the Secret Service, it will be interesting to see if Cain will be able to hold on to Boortz’ 6 million listeners.
