Palin coming to a radio near you?

Inside Radio reports representatives of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.have been "quietly testing the waters" with companies that syndicate radio programming.  President Ronald Reagan got his start in radio. A few former presidential candidates did substitute hosting duties on The Paul Harvey Show, including former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson and former Massachuesetts Governor Mitt Romney.  Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee's sub duties on Harvey's show led to his deal with ABC/Citadel. The Huckabee Report is now heard every weekday on many of the stations which used to carry Harvey's show.

This past June, Huckabee spoke at the Iowa Association of Business and Industry convention in Okoboji. Ryan Long from KICD Radio in Spencer was there to cover Huckabee's speech.  As Huckabee used his hands to illustrate a point during his speech, he knocked the KICD microphone off the lectern. Huckabee picked the microphone up and put it back on the lectern. "I hope KICD is carrying my show," Huckabee quipped to the crowd.  KICD in Spencer, Iowa, is, indeed, carying his show and the next morning KICD listeners got to hear a recording of Huckabee knocking the microphone to the ground, picking it up, and expressing his hope that his voice is heard on KICD.
