Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman is taking his moderate Republican act to the airwaves, launching a new weekly radio show on Sirius XM aimed at highlighting the efforts of other middle of the road politicians.
Huntsman, who launched a failed 2012 GOP presidential nomination bid based on bridge building and cooperation with Democrats, will run the show in conjunction with No Labels, an organization with the goal of bridging the partisan gap in Washington, according to a release.
Huntsman is a co-chair of No Labels, which includes 87 members of Congress dubbed "problem solvers."
On the show, which will air every Saturday from 10 to 11:00 a.m., Huntsman will interview members of Congress involved with No Labels, as well as others seeking to fight gridlock in Washington.
"There doesn't have to be a state of perpetual fighting and gridlock," Huntsman said in a statement. "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."
