SALT LAKE CITY —

Former Republican Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, a 2012 presidential candidate, is helping launch a new monthly radio talk show on SiriusXM satellite radio aimed at promoting bipartisan politics.

The 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 said the show, an hour-long program billed as a "town hall" discussion, "will give Americans the opportunity to hear just the facts from our elected officials."

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. In a statement released by SiriusXM, Huntsman said the partnership between SiriusXM radio and No Labels is an important step toward a national dialogue about common sense solutions and problem solving.

Since his departure from the presidential race in January 2012, Huntsman has been giving speeches and interviews around the country. He signed on with the No Labels organization in January, and announced his support for same-sex marriage in February.

Despite speculation that he may run for president again, Huntsman has said it's too early to discuss whether he'd launch another campaign in 2016.
