Former U.S. senator, Republican presidential candidate and actor Fred Thompson soon will be adding the title of radio talk-show host to his job resume. Syndicator Westwood One said Monday that it had lined up the former Tennessee lawmaker and regular on "Law & Order" to take over when "The Radio Factor With Bill O'Reilly" goes off the air. The program will air two hours every weekday, beginning March 2. Officials at KABC-AM (790) in Los Angeles could not be reached for comment on whether they plan to pick up "The Fred Thompson Show" or go with something else in O'Reilly's 9 a.m. slot.
