Conservative radio show host Neal Boortz is “passing the torch” to Herman Cain, former GOP presidential candidate, as he retires after 42 years on the airwaves. Herman Cain will start his new syndicated radio show on Inauguration Day, January 21. After January, Boortz will continue contributing vignettes (the “Boortz Blast”), and blogging about his travel, Radio-Info reports.
Here’s Herman Cain’s tweet:

I owe a lot to Neal Boortz including in a roundabout way my first job. He has been an influential personality especially in the south.
