No Labels, the political organization that aims to shun entrenched partisanship, is entering the world of radio with their own show on Sirius XM.
“No Labels Radio” will appear on the satellite radio network’s “P.O.T.U.S.” channel and consists of a monthly series of town halls.
The inaugural call-in show will take place on May 15 and feature No Labels co-chairs Jon Huntsman and Sen. Joe Manchin, and be moderated by P.O.T.U.S. host Michael Smerconish.
Reps. Janice Hahn, Scott Peters, Tom Petri, Tulsi Gabbard, Michael Fitzpatrick and Jim Matheson are expected to participate as well. SiriusXM is encouraging listeners to use the #AskCongress hashtag to solicit feedback via Twitter. , , ,
“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,” said Huntsman in a release.”I am proud to be a part of this new venture.” , , ,
I hope that folks who have access to Sirius XM will tune in to these town halls. I believe that you'll find this event to be quite 'revealing,' if not downright scary, LOL!
I've yet to find an announcement for the second town hall, but presume that it will be on or about June 14th, or June 17th.
As soon as the date is 'Tweeted,' I'll update this posting.
