Fox News Keeping An Eye On Geraldo As He Mulls Senate Run

Happy Monday After The Super Bowl Day! If Senator Geraldo Rivera in office, you wouldn’t be at work right now:

 

Yes, it is a bit hard to believe that the Fox News anchor is serious about running for U.S. Senate in New Jersey, but as the New York TimesBrian Stelter reports, FNC is taking his situation seriously:

Mr. Rivera initially brought up his interest in running for the Senate seat on his talk radio show last Thursday. The one-year-old show is distributed by Cumulus. Asked whether Mr. Rivera would have to quit or suspend the show if he decided to run, a spokesman for the distributor said, “Talk radio hosts talk about lots of things, and if at some point this is more than talk we’ll address the issue appropriately then.”

A Fox News spokeswoman went a little further, saying in an e-mail message, “Geraldo would have to step aside as soon as he made a formal decision, and we’re continuing to monitor the situation.”
