The Huckabee Report debuted yesterday on ABC Radio Networks with 38 affiliates. Among the stations carrying the twice-daily, short form news program on day one are KABC – Los Angeles, WBAP – Dallas, KSFO – San Francisco and KEX -Portland. Topics the Governor will hit the deck with include Monday’s meeting between President-Elect Obama and Speaker Pelosi on economic stimulus; the Blagojevich scandal in Illinois; and the latest on the Israeli-Gaza conflict.
"In the weeks since we first announced The Huckabee Report, we’ve seen tremendous momentum in affiliation for the show," said Dave Van Dyke, Vice President of News/Talk Affiliate Relations for ABC Radio Networks. "Governor Huckabee has been quite active in promoting the launch and even took time to meet with prospective affiliates during his recent book tour. We’re very pleased to have such a strong stable of stations for our initial broadcast and encouraged by the number of general managers and program directors we’re still speaking with and hope to have on board soon."
