Paul Harvey's Replacement?
Tim Cuprisin:Fred Thompson made it to the Senate in one of his careers (politics), he's been president in another (acting), and now he's moving into yet another line of work. The 63-year-old former senator from Tennessee formally launches an ABC Radio gig today with a Memorial Day special. He's already been filling in on the legendary Paul Harvey's ABC show. First, let's get the Harvey question out of the way. At 87, Harvey doesn't show any sign of retirement. But he is 87. So could Thompson succeed him? "That's up to the powers that be. I think it could take various avenues in the future. That'll take care of itself."
