Report: ‘Huckabee Post’ Mike Huckabee’s Latest Media Venture

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. 

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
