Talker Neal Boortz will retire on Inauguration Day

After 42 years of poking, scorching and otherwise entertaining the eardrums of metro Atlanta, Neal Boortz is fixin’ to get ready to retire.

The longtime conservative voice of 750AM and 95.5 FM News/Talk WSB on Monday put listeners on notice: A talk show career that stretches back to the days of President Richard Nixon and Gov. Jimmy Carter will end at precisely 1 p.m. Monday, Jan. 21, with either a loud celebration, or a final rant of King Lear proportions.

That’s Inauguration Day, you see.

“If it’s Barack Obama, then I’m going to disappear into the mountains and come out after he has destroyed this country. If it’s Mitt Romney, we’ll start drinking as the show begins,” Boortz told listeners.

Herman Cain, the former Republican presidential candidate, will inherit Boortz’ chair, microphone — and a syndicated audience that reaches 6 million listeners weekly over 200 radio stations. Boortz, 67, will continue to check in daily with a brief tirade.
