Former Republican presidential hopeful and current Fox News host Mike Huckabee is testing the syndication waters.

Twentieth TV announced on Wednesday that it would give “The Huckabee Show” a six-week tryout on seven Fox-owned stations, including WNYW New York. (Los Angeles is not included in the station roster.)

“Governor Huckabee is a dynamic figure with a loyal fan base,” said 20th TV prexy Greg Meidel in making the announcement.

Hour-long will focus on politics and culture. Huckabee will tape “The Huckabee Show” in New York in front of a live studio audience, and will also continue to host Fox News Channel’s weekend show “Huckabee.”

Producing vet Woody Fraser, who’s also behind Huckabee’s Fox News show, will exec produce “The Huckabee Show.”

“Our goal is common sense and common ground in an uncommonly entertaining way,” Huckabee said.

Added Fox TV Stations programming senior VP Frank Cicha: “We’re always looking for topical programs helmed by distinctive personalities that can pair well with news. Governor Huckabee has a good command of key issues of the day and will be a unique voice for daytime television.”

20th TV, the Fox TV Stations and Fox News Channel all fall under the domain of News Corp.’s Roger Ailes.

The syndication unit has regularly used its stations as a testing ground before taking properties across the country. That’s what 20th and the Fox stations are also doing with Craig Kilborn’s “The Kilborn File,” which bowed Monday on KTTV/Los Angeles and six other Fox-owned outlets.

“The Huckabee Show” will air weekdays on WNYW New York (12:00 PM), KDFW Dallas/Fort Worth (1:00 PM), WFXT Boston (10:00 AM), WAGA Atlanta (1:00 PM), WJBK Detroit (12:00 PM), WTVT Tampa (11:00 AM) and KMSP Minneapolis/St. Paul (10:00 AM).
