Herman Cain Returns To The Radio To Deliver Daily Commentaries

Herman Cain, who vowed that he would "continue to be a voice for the people" when he dropped out of the presidential race, is headed back to radio to provide political commentary on some conservative talkers.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Atlanta pizza magnate — who enjoyed a day in the sun as the GOP's frontrunner for the presidential nomination — will be offering up some brief, pre-recorded commentaries on Neal Boortz's and Erick Erickson's respective radio show, and will fill in for them on occasion.

Cain was formerly a night-time host on WSB Radio in Atlanta from 2008 until early 2011, but left to run for office.

Cain's enjoying the spotlight: he's teaming up with the comedian Stephen Colbert, the comedian and host of Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report," for a rally in South Carolina. Earlier this week, Colbert jokingly endorsed Cain in the South Carolina primary. "Herman is the only former candidate who truly shares my values," he quipped. "It's like our values were separated at birth. And our ethics are at least first cousins."
