We found out this week that Neal Boortz will retire, ending his daily talk show in Jan 2013. Herman Cain will take over as host.
When I took over KNSS as Program Director back in 1999-2000, one of the first things I did was put Neal on KNSS. I knew about his show and the success he was having. I liked what my ears were hearing, and I thought he would work in Wichita. Today, Neal Boortz is one of the top radio shows on the Wichita airwaves during his time slot.
Those of us that listen to KNSS had heard of Herman Cain before his run for the Presidency this year. He was always one of the great fill-in hosts. Well now, Herman is going full time nationwide, and on KNSS. Even though Radio has been around 100 years, Radio is very relevant today because it knows how to evolve. I believe we are about to hear a new evolution in Radio with Herman Cain. Like Neal Boortz, Herman is unlike many talk hosts in the county. He really has a genuine style that is compelling to listen to … and why I think we will succeed.
