Geraldo Rivera’s radio show is going national, Cumulus Media Networks announced.

Rivera, who started hosting live and local radio shows in New York City and Los Angeles earlier this year, will join Mike Huckabee in broadcasting his own national show for Cumulus stations.

Cumulus has more than 4,000 affiliates reaching 121 million listeners and will offer stations nationwide a live 9 am-noon radio show hosted by the award-winning journalist and commentator starting August 13. The show’s tagline is “Not Red. Not Blue. But Red, White, and Blue.”

“Despite the nation’s partisan divide, the success of the show on WABC and KABC is a clear indication that there is room in radio for someone who is not associated with a particular ideology,” Rivera said, according to Cumulus.

“I’m a patriot and a pragmatic idealist, who believes both the political left and the right have contributions to make,” he said. “I’ve also developed a comfortable enough relationship with the audience over the last four plus decades in television news for listeners in a spirited way to tell me when they think I’m full of beans. Like I say, ‘I’m not always right.’ I’m grateful to Cumulus for giving me the shot at the national show, and look forward to broadcasting live from the presidential nominating conventions.”

Rivera’s show focuses on the news of the day and ranges form politics to crime to social issues. Rivera will continue hosting his Sunday prime time show on Fox News.
