About Burgundy Ball Entertainer Mike Huckabee

Mike Huckabee was the 44th governor of Arkansas from 1996 until 2007, becoming one of the longest serving governors in his state’s history, and was only the fourth Republican elected to any statewide office since Reconstruction, serving longer than the other three combined. He left a legacy of tax cuts, job creation, the reconstruction of his state’s road system, K-16 education reform, and a nationally heralded and duplicated health initiative that focused on prevention.

Gov. Huckabee was the host of the number one rated weekend show “HUCKABEE,” on the Fox News channel, from 2008 until 2015. He also hosted “The Huckabee Report” – which was heard three times daily across the nation on almost 600 radio stations from 2009 to 2015 – and is the New York Times bestselling author of 12 books.

Governing magazine named him as one of its “Public Officials of the Year” for 2005, and Time magazine honored him as one of the five best governors in America. He has been honored by numerous organizations for his commitment to music education. He served as the chairman of the prestigious National Governors Association as well as the Education Commission of the States, the Southern Governors’ Association, and the Interstate Oil and Gas Commission.

Huckabee, 61, an avid musician since age 11, is a bass player. His hobbies include hunting, fishing, and music. He was named one of the “25 Most Influential People” for Conservation by Outdoor Life magazine, and was named “Man of the Year” by the American Sportfishing Association in 1997. The former governor and his wife, Janet, live in Florida and still spend part of their time in Arkansas. They have three grown children – John Mark, David, and Sarah – and five grandchildren – Chandler Huckabee, Scarlett Sanders, Caroline Grace Huckabee, William Huckabee “Huck” Sanders, and George Sanders.
