• WSB radio host Neal Boortz to retire from daily show


    ATLANTA - After more than four decades on the air, conservative News Talk 750 WSB radio host Neal Boortz will retire next year.

    Boortz made the announcement Monday morning, but said he will continue to host The Neal Boortz Show until January.

    “My last day on the air will be January 21 next year, which is the next day we inaugurate a new president,” Boortz said on the air.

    Boortz is a self-described Libertarian. He has said the difference between Democrats and Republicans is that “Democrats just want to grow our Imperial Federal Government and spend money just a bit faster than the Republicans do.”

    Boortz has been a talk show host in Atlanta since 1969. His program on WSB, which began in 1993, airs from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. each week day. About 6 million listeners nationwide listen to Boortz on around 230 radio stations. In 2009, Neal was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame by Rush Limbaugh.

    Boortz is passing the torch to his friend and colleague, former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain. Prior to running for president, Cain worked with Coca-Cola and Burger King. He was also the president and CEO of Godfather’s Pizza.
