Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee says his new "The Huckabee Show" will be lighter than his weekly series on the Fox News Channel, describing it as "not a gloom and doom show," reports the New York Daily News.
Huckabee will be trying out his approach in a six-week test on several Fox-owned stations, including WNYW-TV in New York, the story says. The daytime show will have a house band and include performances, but it won’t skip over political issues, with one of the episodes including a discussion about reinstating the draft, the piece says.
"The pace is a little different, there’s a lot of energy in the show," Huckabee says. ""I probably won’t hit anyone. I’m pretty sure of that. I have to be who I am. I can’t throw chairs. I’m not going to do a show on my mother slept with my stepson. That’s just not who I am. If it doesn’t work, it doesn’t work."
