Atlanta’s Herman Cain joins Newsmax TV as commentator

Herman Cain, the 2012 presidential candidate and former 95.5 WSB radio host, has joined Newsmax TV as a regular contributor and analyst.

Since April 22, the 74-year-old Atlanta-based former business executive has been making appearances on various Newsmax shows hosted by John F. Bachman, Greg Kelly and Chris Salcedo.

In the past month, he has also made appearances on Fox News with “Fox and Friends” and Laura Ingraham’s prime-time show. 

The Boca Raton, Fla.-based conservative-leaning Newsmax, which debuted in 2014, considers itself an alternative to Fox News, targeting the “heartland” of America. Its fare includes a mix of news and talk, along with documentaries and films, mostly on weekends. 

Newsmax is run by Christopher Ruddy, a friend of Donald Trump.

“Herman is an American original, a true success story,” said Ruddy in a press release. “He’s a brilliant business leader and canny political observer who can navigate Capitol Hill blindfolded, and pulls no punches in his opinions.”

Cain, also a Trump ally, had a night radio show on news/talk WSB from 2008 to 2011. He stepped down to run for president, then returned as a nationally syndicated radio show from 2013 to 2017. He ended his time with WSB in 2018

He is now hosting a daily webcast on his website www.hermancain.com

Newsmax TV is available in more than 70 million households, according to Newsmax. (You can check here for where it is on your cable or satellite network.)
