In addition to being a former governor and presidential candidate, author, blogger, pundit, and television host, Mike Huckabee is now set to start appearing regularly on the radio early next year:
ABC Radio Networks announced today that it has signed former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee to its extensive roster of news/talk talent. The Huckabee Report will be broadcast weekday mornings and afternoons and provide listeners with the top news stories of the day while also drawing on Huckabee’s experiences as a former governor and presidential candidate. The short form news features will launch on Jan. 5, 2009.
“It’s truly an honor to add someone of Governor Huckabee’s stature to our portfolio,” said Jim Robinson, President of ABC Radio Networks. “His perspective on the day’s leading issues and events as they relate to American culture and policies is sure to resonate with radio audiences looking for the latest headlines mixed with a bit of humor and common sense. This partnership has tremendous potential and will be a key win for our affiliates in the coming year.”
