Mike Huckabee apparently doesn’t believe in doing anything halfway. The former Arkansas governor is going to take on Rush Limbaugh – the dean of conservative talk radio – beginning in April.

Huckabee will be running a radio show weekdays from noon to 3 p.m. for Cumulus Media Networks, The New York Times reports. The company began selling it to radio stations this week with a scheduled April 2 start date.

Huckabee will hosting “Huckabee,” his weekend talk show on the Fox News Channel, as well as the short radio commentaries that Cumulus already distributes each day. But he’s not letting his media career determine whether he may once again run for president.

“If, a few years down the road, I see an opening, I don’t rule it out, but I’m not plotting a political return either,” he told the Times.

Cumulus is driving straight at the most successful radio syndication company, Clear Channel Communications, which distributes Limbaugh’s show and an array of others, the Times reported. It pointed out that “Limbaugh all but owns the hours of noon to 3 p.m. Eastern time on talk radio, having fended off any number of would-be competitors.”

“I don’t feel like I’m a competitor,” Huckabee said when asked about the match-up in time slots with Mr. Limbaugh. “He’s going to have an audience that will be very loyal and has been for over 20 years. I doubt that will change.”
