Michigan Republican Mike Rogers announces he will leave Congress and launch a career in radio. The former FBI agent who’s now chairman of the House Intelligence Committee will host a syndicated talk show for Cumulus Media. “You may have lost my vote in Congress but not my voice,” Rogers, 50, told his constituents in a letter. Rogers has served in the House since 2001.
"We are thrilled to have chairman Rogers join our team,” Cumulus CEO Lew Dickey said in a statement. “He has been instrumental helping to shape many of the most important issues and events of our time and will play a significant role in our expanding content platform.”
Rogers’ show launches in January after he completes his term in Congress. Rogers says no daypart has been settled on for the program.
