Herman Cain rejoins WSB Radio with daily commentaries

herman cain 2012

AP

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.

Just heard Herman’s first commentary. Not sure how he comes up with the logic that the Keystone Pipeline would reduce our dependency on “foreign” oil – when Canada (where the pipeline would start & from where the oil comes) is a “foreign” country.

Smart enough to be President, too stupid and arrogant to think his indiscretions would not come to light.

Good to have him back. Rick you know what he means. We have more than enough nat has and oil in n america where we can now export it. Yet we have a president who caters to the enviro wacko crowd for political favor. Nice leadership.

By suspending his presidential campaign the money accumulated does not have to be repaid so maybe that will buy him more women or such! Shame on WSB radio

Becky is right. His campaign was a joke, a blatant ploy for more fame and higher book sales. That said, I’m sure if you took ol Herm in a private room and asked him straight up, he would admit that no Black man has any business running for a Republcian position, not after the powers-that-be found all his dirty laundry and paid big books to make sure everyone else knew it too, lol. They let him know in no uncertain terms he was getting “too big for his britches.” Herm knows it. He won’t admit it publicly but he’ll give you a wink if you ask him about it.

I love Herman Cain, and look forward to his commentary. What a wonderful man, and his singing voice is lovely. I still want him to be President.

It will be great to have Cain back on the air. I believe at some point they will track this back to the Obama camp, who felt “threatened” by his presence.

Besides – Cain had no indisretions – Bill Clinton, while in office – well we know how that turned out.
Talk about arrogance.

He closed today’s with….”we are not stupid!” Yet, he says the pipeline (which I favor) will bring down gas prices; unless he can predict world markets for oil, how does he know?

Well, guess I’m stupid for listening to his vapid commentary; and shouldn’t Canada become a state?

Hermie,haven’t you embarrased your family and yourself long enough? The same party whose butt you kissed has now kicked you to the curb, and now disown you.Do you really think the GOP wanted you? Why don’t you give your buddy Juan Williams a call and ask him how he’s feeling right about now after the debate.You both are very gullible idiots.

This situation is just sad. “come on back Herm, we’ll find something for you”. The man speaks like he’s teaching a kindergarten class. Could hardly listen to him before, gonna be tough to listen to him now. I’m glad they didn’t get rid if Erickson. Go Newt!

Clearly, a self absorbed egotist that craves the spotlight and loves the sound of his own voice. Sadly, there is only one person on the plant does not realize his credibility is long gone. That person is Herman Cain.

In going through the string above, I am not sure why anyone would want to lead a country full of such ignorant and mean spirited people. The fellow isn’t perfect, but who among you in this string can throw the first stone? Which of you is perfect? Why do you believe anyone should be perfect to be President? One can’t live in this world and stay unblemished. I have led an exemplary life, but know that someone could take the fabric of my life and make rags of it with innuendo and scorn, so don’t involve myself in public life. Try to be a bit kinder to the next person you meet.

A lot of y’all need your mouthes washed out with soap. You hate Cain so bad, yet you read every story about him, and then spew your verbal vomit around – real nice. Some of us ARE interested in what Herman’s up to, so why don’t you haters go hug the nearest tree and read up on your buddy Barry Obama…and post to that page. Welcome back to the ATL airwaves, Herman!

Glad Herman Cain is back. I still marvel at all the comments about indiscretions. That would have made him right at home in Washington DC. If all government officials with indiscretions left Washington, the place would be a ghost town. Same for presidential candidates, I fear.

I used to listen to his show in the evenings while commuting, and I’m glad he’s taken to two minute sound bites. That is about all he has the intellectual capacity to give. His analyses are superficial and uncompelling, as is his understanding of the issues. From the moment he announced his candidacy, I knew it was a scam. The guy lacks three brain cells to rub together.

One more narrow minded, mean spirited bigot joins WSB. Too bad WSB doesn’t believe in balanced view points. Instead we get Boortz, the Louisiana jerk-off (and I’m from Louisiana so I can call him that) and the resumption of Herman Cain’s right wing diatribe. Atlanta will never be an international city as long as WSB continues supporting the Klan in it’s talk show format.

I think we have a winner here!

Boortz is beyond bitter. Hannity hates Obama 24/7. Howard just wants to sell books.

Why anybody would want to listen to Herman Cain any more is beyond me… Even if it is only for two minutes twice a day. He had his chance to really make a difference and blew it, with his apparent inability to control himself around women. What a shame.

Why should trust oil companies to set up a pipeline down the middle of the country after the BP Oil spill? Keystone is a bad idea and all the promises of new jobs turned out to be greatly exaggerated. What Obama said was right though, the GOP tried to push it through quickly which honestly did not give enough time for anyone to really study the impact. If they really thought it would help us, they would have handled it differently.
