SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman is helping launch a new weekly radio talk show on SiriusXM aimed at promoting bipartisan politics.
The Republican Huntsman, former U.S. ambassador to China, and Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia will appear Wednesday on the inaugural edition of the call-in show on Sirius XM Radio — “No Labels Radio: A Town Hall with America.”
Manchin is the honorary co-chairman of a coalition of 68 members of Congress called “No Labels Problem Solvers.” Members include Democratic Rep. Jim Matheson of Utah and Republican Sen. Dean Heller of Nevada.
Huntsman made a brief run for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination. He says the partnership between SiriusXM radio and No Labels is an important step toward a national dialogue about common sense solutions and problem solving.
