Herman Cain Off WSB; May Run for President.
February 2, 2011 - After three years on AM750 and now 95.5FM News/Talk WSB, Cain aired his final show Tuesday night so he could pursue a possible presidential bid. Program Director Pete Spriggs called it a "hiatus: in the local Atlanta newspaper.
Depending how it goes and what he decides and how successful he is, Spriggs told the paper, it could be a very long-term hiatus from the air. He has the exploratory committee to explore the possibility of running for president. It's been impossible to do that, as it needs to be done across the country, and do his talk show.
Beginning Thursday, Cain will be replaced in the 7 to 10 p.m. time slot by Erick Erickson, who had been on from 9 to midnight. Cain is a conservative businessman who has also subbed for Neal Boortz.
