Via press release:
Former Arkansas Governor, presidential candidate, and longtime popular political commentator Mike Huckabee has teamed up with global faith-and-family television leader Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) for a new weekly news and talk show premiering this fall exclusively on TBN. “Huckabee” will combine Gov. Huckabee’s commentary on news-of-the-day and current issues, along with guests from the worlds of politics, entertainment and faith.
The program will follow a similar format from his fan-favorite Fox News Channel talk show of the same title, which aired on the network from 2008 until 2015 and averaged nearly 2 million viewers, with more than half of those falling in the 25-54 demographic. “Huckabee” will be taped in front of a live studio audience in Nashville, Tenn.
“We are excited to add ‘Huckabee’ to our lineup at TBN, as the first of many new developments at our network,” says TBN Chairman Matt Crouch. “Mike has a decades-long reputation for compassionate statesmanship, solid biblical counsel, and solid common sense perspective. His is a welcome voice of wisdom, integrity, and faith that America sorely needs right now.”
“TBN is the perfect home for this new television offering,” says Huckabee. “I am grateful to Matt Crouch for sharing the vision of a weekend destination on TV where we talk to newsmakers and celebrities in a civil and respectful manner as well as introduce America to some not-so-famous people whose stories remind us that the greatness of our nation is about the people who love God, raise their families, and serve their neighbors.”
As most of you surely know, TBN is at the center of the “prosperity gospel” movement in which preachers promise personal wealth if you first send THEM lots of money.
