Rep. Mike Rogers, the chairman of the House intel committee, will not seek reelection. At the end of this term in Congress, he'll become a radio host.

The Detroit News reports that Rogers made the announcement this morning on a radio show:

[Rogers] announced he will become a radio talk show host for after his term ends in December — returning to a college passion.

“They may have lost my vote in Congress, but you haven’t lost my voice,” Rogers told Paul W. Smith Friday morning on WJR-AM (760).

Rogers said he’ll start in January as a nationally syndicated radio show host at Cumulus Radio.

"We are thrilled to have Chairman Rogers join our team. 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,” said Lew Dickey, CEO of Cumulus.

Rogers attended Adrian College where he hosted a radio show. Between sets of music, he would offer impressions, including one of a female traffic reporter — beating his chest to sound like helicopter, The Detroit News reported in a profile last July.
