Huckabee Talking Fox News Show

Mikehuckabeenosuit Mike Huckabee is in talks to headline his own Fox News show, the candidate told supporters in an e-mail, according to the Politico.

He’d be the latest star political figure to join the news network, following in the footsteps of Karl Rove and former Clinton adviser Howard Wolfson.

Huckabee had been expected to land something big ever since he signed on with CAA in April, and he became a Fox News analyst shortly after that.

But the biggest prize would be if Huckabee lands a permanent gig as successor to Paul Harvey on ABC Radio. He’d reap a huge payday, but there is only one catch: Harvey, 89, isn’t retiring, although he’s had health problems and has been mourning the death of his wife, Lynne “Angel” Harvey, in May.

A bit ironically, one person who has been noticeably absent as a Harvey sub is Fred Thompson, the former presidential candidate who was said to have been weighing the merits of running vs. pursuing the huge payday from the ABC Radio gig.
