ABC RADIO NETWORKS inks FOX NEWS CHANNEL host and former ARKANSAS Governor MIKE HUCKABEE for a daily short-form feature, "THE HUCKABEE REPORT," starting JANUARY 5th.
"It's truly an honor to add someone of Gov. HUCKABEE's stature to our portfolio," said ABC RADIO NETWORKS Pres. JIM ROBINSON. "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."
"My first job at the age of 14 was reading the early morning news, sports, weather and even commercials at our local radio station, so in a sense, this is an opportunity for me to return to my roots," said Gov. HUCKABEE. "I worked my way through high school and college in radio and loved every minute of it. The team at ABC RADIO NETWORKS has a stellar reputation for syndicating news programming and I'm pleased that I'll be partnering with them as I reach out to Americans across the airwaves."
