Ex-Utah Gov. Huntsman hosting weekly radio show

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Former Republican Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, a 2012 presidential candidate, will host a new weekly radio talk show on SiriusXM satellite radio aimed at promoting bipartisan politics.

Huntsman helped launch a similar program in May, but that show was monthly and Huntsman only served as an occasional host.

SiriusXM says in a statement the company felt the monthly show was a success and decided to expand it to a weekly program with Huntsman.

The new venture, an hour-long program called "No Labels Radio With Jon Huntsman," will air on Saturdays, starting Oct. 26.

Huntsman is a co-chair of a group of 87 members of Congress called No Labels, which calls for an end to dysfunctional politics and more problem-solving in Washington, D.C.
