MI Rep. Rogers to be radio show host

Posted: Updated:
Come January, you'll find Mike Rogers on the radio dial rather than on Capitol Hill.
    
The House Intelligence Committee chairman and ex-FBI agent is quitting Congress to host a daily radio show.
    
The Michigan Republican says he'll work on being a "productive conservative" on the airwaves.
    
Rogers might not be done with politics - he foresees being back in government service in some capacity in the future.
    
So there's unquestioned value for those future prospects from the three hours each day that he will spend fielding questions and reasoning with listeners.
    
Cumulus Radio Group is betting that listeners and advertisers will find Rogers' hearty voice, contempt for right-wing ideologues and expertise in national security inviting.
    
Rogers' hope is to "move the needle" toward the political center on radio.

That's an inflammation of the brain caused when someone is bitten by an infected mosquito.
