Final Mike Huckabee Show
Will Be December 12th
Mike Huckabee will host his final radio show on December 12, ending the former Arkansas governor’s foray into daily talk radio that began in April 2012. “The Mike Huckabee Show” currently airs from 10am to noon on 55 Country and more than 200 other stations nationwide. In a Facebook posting, Huckabee said his contract was at “a decision point for both Cumulus Media and me, and we mutually agreed to conclude.” “I have loved doing ‘the Mike Huckabee Show’ and its success of going from launch to over 200 stations in less than 2 years is significant,” Huckabee said on Facebook. “I have opportunities in some other areas that cannot be accomplished given the 8-9 hours a day I was devoting to the daily long form show.”
Huckabee said he accomplished his mission to develop a show that “focused on civil discourse on complicated topics as well as human events and stories from the entertainment world.” He thanked the affiliates, listeners and advertisers “who entrusted me with their brands and products.”
55 Country Owner and General Manager, Frank Hanel, expressed his disappointment that The Mike Huckabee Show was ending. But indicated he is already considering possible replacements for the program. Hanel stated that “if the community wants political and current event talk programming to continue on the station, there are a number of terrific options”, and encouraged listeners to weigh in with their comments and suggestions, and what they would like to hear on 55 Country. PLEASE TAKE THE SURVEY DEALING WITH A REPLACEMENT FOR THE HUCKABEE SHOW. LOOK FOR IT IN THE GREEN BOX TO THE RIGHT.
