Fox News host and former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee reflects in Politico on his two-year-long career in radio, including an anecdote about his “most awkward” on-air interview:
“It was a woman who got fired because she said that her boss thought that her breasts were too big. And I’m not making this up,” Huckabee recalled. “So I’m sitting there having to interview this woman about her boss thought her breasts were too big. I’ve had conversations with a lot of people, public and private, but this is just not one I want to have on a national radio show. It was bizarre. It was absolutely the most awkward, uncomfortable conversation I think I’ve probably ever had.”
Huckabee said he got through the interview on air, but after it wrapped he remembered telling the producer, “Look, I don’t mind doing fun stuff, I don’t mind doing some stuff that’s off the wall, but this is the kind of topic — this isn’t going to happen again.”
“That’s one I’ve tried to forget; unfortunately I’m unable to,” he said with a laugh.
Huckabee, who is telling people he might run for president again in 2016, possibly to boost his TV ratings, ended his radio show in November.
