(Newser) – Herman Cain may not be a professional has-been after all. The former pizza entrepreneur, talk show host, and GOP presidential candidate is returning to the airwaves on Atlanta's News-Talk WSB radio, the Los Angeles Times reports. The man with the "9-9-9" tax plan will take over from libertarian-leaning Neal Boortz, who has hosted his own show for 20 years. Cain will grab the reins full-time after inauguration day, January 21, 2013.

“I promise the torch Boortz is handing off to me will blaze as bright, as bold, and as loud as ever,” said Cain, calling himself "The Dean of the University of Common Sense." Cain appeared on air with Boortz to toast his announcement with champagne, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. “For all practical purposes, I am done with politics," Cain said. "Essentially, I wanted to continue to express my views and help educate what’s going on in this country.” (If you happen to miss Cain's gospel singing, click here.)
