Former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee plans to launch a publication called the “Huckabee Post” in January 2014, ABC News reported Monday.

David Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor’s son, told ABC News that his father’s news website will cover everything from politics to pop culture. He called the publication a “natural extension and expansion” of the commentary his father already does on other media outlets, including his radio show and Fox News.

Mediaite spotted a Craiglist ad for the site Friday, which called for reporters to work out of offices in New York City and Washington, D.C.

Mike Huckabee recently ended his talk radio program. He told the New York Times that he held back from running for president in 2012 because he didn’t think Obama could be defeated, but said he’s keeping the door open for a second White House bid in 2016.
