Another Huntsman. Another political media gig. Former 2012 GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman has signed on to host a weekly radio program on SiriusXM's POTUS channel, following daughter Abby's lead into the land of political media. She currently co-hosts The Cycle on MSNBC
Huntsman's show will be called "No Labels Radio with Jon Huntsman" and the former Utah governor and U.S. Ambassador to China will bring on guests to discuss bipartisan solutions for breaking up the gridlock in Washington.
Huntsman's affiliation with the No Labels brand began last January when he and Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.V., were named honorary co-chairs of a coalition of lawmakers and industry leaders all for working across the aisle. Former Sen. Evan Bayh, D-Ind., is now also a figurehead of the group. Huntsman hosted a No Labels radio town hall on the satellite radio station earlier this year, but this new show will air weekly on Saturdays at 10 a.m. EST.
"There doesn't have to be a state of perpetual fighting and gridlock," Huntsman said in a release. "We hope to show SiriusXM listeners that there are political leaders in both parties who are deeply committed to reaching across the aisle, finding common ground and tackling the nation's toughest problems."
