Independent Talk 1100 KFNX is excited to announce the new show with Fox News Channel TV and national radio host Mike Huckabee, starting Monday May 28, 2012. The show will air weekdays from 1 - 3 pm.
Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee is the host of the number one rated weekend hit HUCKABEE on the Fox News Channel and Cumulus Media Networks’ syndicated radio program, The Mike Huckabee Show (heard on more than 200 stations). He is the author of 9 books, the most recent being "A Simple Government." This is his fourth book that has been on the New York Times Best Seller list. After his campaign for the Republican nomination for President in 2008, in which he finished second to John McCain, he formed HuckPac to assist Conservative Republicans running for office nationwide and has amassed a volunteer team with thousands of activists in all 50 states. From 1996-2007, Huckabee served as the 44th Governor of Arkansas and was recognized nationally for his leadership. Governing magazine named him as one of its 'Public Officials of the Year' for 2005, Time Magazine honored him as one of the five best governors in America. Huckabee became governor in July 1996 when his predecessor resigned. He was one of the youngest governors in the country at the time. Huckabee was elected to a full four-year term as governor in 1998, attracting the largest percentage of the vote ever received by a Republican gubernatorial nominee in Arkansas, and was re-elected to another four-year term in November 2002.
After an early career in broadcasting and advertising, he spent 12 years as a pastor and denominational leader. He became the youngest president ever of the Arkansas Southern Baptist State Convention. Huckabee, 56, is an avid musician and is bass player in his rock-n-roll band, Capitol Offense, and he is featured each week in the musical segment of his Fox show with the Fox house band, The Little Rockers. His hobbies include hunting, fishing, running, and music. He was named one of the 25 Most Influential People for Conservation by Outdoor Life magazine, and was named Man of the Year by the American Sportfishing Association in 1997. The former governor and his wife, Janet, live in Florida and still spend part of their time in Arkansas. They have three grown children: John Mark, David and Sarah and one grandchild, Chandler.
