On behalf of me and my entire staff from “Huckabee” on TBN, I’d like to extend our deepest gratitude to the International Country Gospel Music Association for honoring us with their 2018 Award for “TV Show of the Year!”
When I first started doing a TV series, some network suit types were baffled. Whoever heard of a news/talk show with a band? One where top political figures rubbed elbows with comedians and great musicians? Where the host moved from interviewing the Attorney General to playing the bass with the musical guest (whether the guest wanted me to or not!)
Luckily, audiences got it, and the ratings showed they had as much fun watching it as I did hosting it. Now, we’re thrilled to be on TBN, where great people both on my staff and at the network help me bring you not only major newsmakers and inspiring Huck’s Heroes, but the best in comedy, variety and all genres of music: country stars like Ricky Skaggs, Lorrie Morgan and the Oak Ridge Boys; classic rock icons like Mark Farner of Grand Funk and Felix Cavaliere of the Young Rascals; pop and soul legends like Tony Orlando and Sam Moore of Sam & Dave, and both established artists and rising stars of country, gospel, Christian rock and more. Imagine Ed Sullivan if he’d interviewed Mike Pence between the Chinese acrobats and Rare Earth.
If you’re missing “Huckabee,” you’re not just missing news-making interviews, but also some fantastic family-friendly entertainment. Fortunately, you can catch up on past episodes at the link. As for me, I’m going to go look for a prominent spot to proudly display our new award!
