Washington • Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman is helping to launch a monthly radio show aimed at helping bridge the deep political divide in Washington.
Huntsman is joining Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., for a town-hall style talk show on Wednesday on Sirius XM Radio as part of the bipartisan group No Labels' effort to find common ground among political leaders.
"The partnership between Sirius XM radio and No Labels is yet another important step in the process of broadening the national conversation around common sense solutions and problem solving," Huntsman said in a statement.
Huntsman will be one of the 68 so-called "problem solvers" involved in the show, which is to air at noon Mountain Time on Wednesday on channel 124 and streamed on the outlet's website and phone apps.
The No Labels group has attempted to find members of Congress willing to step aside from their partisan affiliations to pass legislation. Rep. Jim Matheson, D-Utah, is also a member of the group.
