The NEW YORK TIMES is reporting that former ARKANSAS Governor and Presidential candidate MIKE HUCKABEE is launching a daily radio show with a new noon-3p (ET) weekday talk show for CUMULUS MEDIA NETWORKS. The show, which is in the same time slot as PREMIERE NETWORKS' RUSH LIMBAUGH's show, is scheduled to start APRIL 2nd.
HUCKABEE, who will host the show mostly from his FLORIDA home, told STELTER that he is not ruling a future run for the presidency out "but I'm not plotting a political return either." He said that he doesn't feel like a competitor to LIMBAUGH, and Co-COO JOHN DICKEY said that the show will be positioned as an alternative to LIMBAUGH, noting that "only one station can have RUSH in a market."
HUCKABEE will continue to host his weekend show on FOX NEWS CHANNEL and will continue his daily "THE HUCKABEE REPORT" commentaries for CUMULUS.
