Huckabee to start Harvey-esque segments for ABC radio

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) may be replacing another folksy, conservative personality on the radio.

Huckabee will be recording a five-minute segment of commentary in the mold of the late radio personality Paul Harvey, who passed away late last month, U.S. News reported Sunday. The segment will be entitled "The Huckabee Report."

Harvey was known for his down-home blend of conservative news and views expressed with an old-school broadcaster's intonation and inflection. Huckabee subbed in for Harvey several times last summer on the radio show.

"The only person who can fill Paul Harvey's slot is Paul Harvey," Huckabee told U.S. News.
