Mike Huckabee Adding Radio Show to Résumé

By Alex Weprin 

Fox News host and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee is getting a three-hour afternoon radio show from Cumulus Media Networks, Brian Stelter at the New York Times reports.

Stelter writes that the new show is something of an attack on talk-radio stalwart Rush Limbaugh, whose program airs at the same time in many markets. Huckabee, who hosts his eponymous Fox News show on the weekend, will add his radio show from noon-3PM Monday-Friday.  His deal with FNC is not expected to change… for now.

Mr. Huckabee will normally host the radio show from Florida, where he lives, but it will travel with him as he gives speeches and tapes his weekend Fox show. He said he would remain affiliated with Fox News for “as long as they keep renewing my contract,” which is up for renewal this year.
