Herman Cain has signed back with his former employer AM750 and 95.5 FM News/Talk WSB.
Starting this morning, he will provide pre-taped two-minute commentaries each weekday at 8:45 a.m. during Neal Boortz’s morning show and repeated at 6:45 p.m. during Erick Erickson’s evening program. (UPDATE: Cain’s first topic this morning: the Keystone pipeline.)
The Atlanta businessman will also speak to Boortz live at 10:35 a.m. every Monday and Friday. And he will do occasional fill-in work for Boortz and Erickson when they are on vacation. This arrangement is set for at least through Election Day this year.
Pete Spriggs, WSB radio program director, said Cain’s busy schedule precluded him from returning to his talk show full time.
This exclusive radio deal does not impact Cain’s TV commitments, Spriggs added.
The former Godfather’s Pizza CEO was a night-time host on WSB from 2008 until early 2011 when he left to pursue a run for the presidency. With his debate performances and “999″ tax plan, Cain hit a peak in early fall when he briefly led in polling for the Republican candidacy but lost steam when hit by allegations of sexual harassment and adultery. He strongly denied the allegations. In early December, he suspended his campaign.
