Fans And Friends Gather For Boortz Farewell Party


Saturday night at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, industry executives and nearly 5,000 fans of Neal Boortz got together to thank him for his 40-plus years in broadcasting. Among the guests were Cox Radio CEO Doug Franklin, Sean Hannity, Clark Howard, Jeff Foxworthy, and Herman Cain. Cain will take over for Boortz when he retires on January 18. Boortz also received a surprise video tribute from Rush Limbaugh.
Boortz wrote on his Facebook page, "Thanks to the 4,650 people who came to my Happy Ending party at the Fox Theater in Atlanta last night. You're my extended family -- LOVE YOU. And thanks to to my Happy Ending guests! Banks & Shane, our emcee Chuck Dowdle, Sean Hannity, Jeff Foxworthy, Rush (no last name needed), a nice greeting from Larry the Cable Guy, Jamie Dupree, Herman Cain, Clark Howard, Erick Erickson, Monica Pearson, the two women I love the most to whom I'm not related, Belinda and Cristina, and my family, THE QUEEN, of course, and my daughter, Laura and her husband. The grandbaby stayed home taking care of a babysitter. Oh ... and Hannity, The Queen and I closed down a particular bar at 2:30 last night. That was the after-party. Love you all -- mean it -- and Royal was deeply missed."
