Mike Huckabee Running For President in 2016?

What some prognosticators see as a sure sign that Mike Huckabee is a planning a run for the White  House in 2016 has his radio listeners simply mourning the loss of his message on over 200 radio stations across the country every day.

Mike Huckabee, the popular former Governor from Arkansas, has ended his popular radio show to free up his time for other exploits. Here’s his message to his fans on Facebook.

Mike HuckabeeThe Mike Huckabee Show on radio, which was heard 3 hours a day on over 200 radio stations across the country since April of 2012 will conclude its run at the end of the final show on Thursday, December 12. This does not in any way effect The Huckabee Report, my three times daily commentary which is now heard on over 500 radio stations and continues to grow. It will remain without interruption and grow in the future. 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, but the contract was at a decision point for both Cumulus Media and me, and we mutually agreed to conclude. 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. In the original development of the show, I set out to develop a talk radio show that focused on civil discourse on complicated topics as well as human events and stories from the entertainment world, I feel we have done that and done it well. I am forever grateful to the really wonderful affiliates and their listeners who have been so very supportive, and to the advertisers who entrusted me with their brands and products. I look forward to doing some Town Hall events in conjunction with Cumulus Media in 2014 as well as continuing with the Huckabee Report. As for the new endeavors, at this time, it would best for me to say, “Stay tuned!”
