WASHINGTON, March 28 House Intelligence
Committee Chairman Mike Rogers plans to leave Congress after
this year to host a talk radio show for Cumulus Media Inc
, the Michigan congressman said on Friday.
"I had a career before politics and always planned to have
one after. The genius of our institutions is they are not
dependent on the individual temporary occupants privileged to
serve. That is why I have decided not to seek re-election to
Congress in 2014," the Republican said in a statement.
Speaking earlier on Friday to a radio station based in
Detroit, Rogers said he plans to start his Cumulus show in
January, the Detroit News reported.
"They may have lost my vote in Congress, but you haven't
lost my voice," he told WJR-AM, according to the newspaper.
