Mike Huckabee -- former governor of
Arkansas, Republican presidential candidate and popular collaborator to various
news programs -- is getting a shot at his own talker. News Corp.-owned Twentieth
Television will test a talk show, hosted by Huckabee, for six weeks in seven
markets starting on Monday, July 26. 

The
Huckabee Show
, an hour-long strip, will be taped
in New York in front of a live studio audience. Huckabee will continue to host his
eponymous weekend program, Huckabee, on Fox News Channel.

The
program will air on Fox-owned stations in the following markets: WNYW New
York  at 12:00 p.m.; KDFW Dallas/Fort Worth at 1 p.m.; WFXT Boston at 10:00
a.m.; WAGA Atlanta at 1:00 p.m.; WJBK Detroit at 12:00 p.m.; WTVT Tampa at

 "We're
always looking for topical programs helmed by distinctive personalities that
can pair well with news," said Frank Cicha, SVP of programming for Fox
Television Stations, in a statement.

Similarly,
Twentieth and Fox TV stations are currently running a six-week test of The
Kilborn File
, which also is airing in seven markets.
