If the phrase “9-9-9” had just stopped ringing in your ears at night, don’t worry: the Herminator will be back.
It was announced today that Herman Cain, former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza and everybody’s favorite GOP primary candidate, will get his own nationally syndicated radio show beginning January 21, 2013.
Cain will inherit the program from a fellow proponent of radical tax code simplification, Neal Boortz, who is retiring. Boortz currently has 6 million listeners in 200 markets.
The Hollywood Reporter writes, “Boortz’s plan – not yet set in stone – is to co-host the show with Cain on Jan. 21, when they’ll either celebrate President Barack Obama’s last day in office or lament four more years.”
Cain is no stranger to radio, having hosted a popular local show in Atlanta before his ill-fated run for the White House. He was also known to fill in for Sean Hannity from time to time.
The end of Cain’s Presidential campaign was covered relentlessly by the press, focusing on sexual harassment allegations laid against him when he worked at the National Restaurant Association, all of which he denied.
But it appears that Mr. Cain has bounced back nicely. The only question: how many times will he utter “9-9-9” during the first episode of his new program? Drinking game, anyone?
