REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL HOPEFUL JON HUNTSMAN, JR. AND HIS WIFE, MARY KAYE,
MAKE THEIR FIRST LIVE DAYTIME TALK SHOW APPEARANCE ON “THE VIEW,” OCTOBER 6
Republican presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman and his wife, Mary Kaye, will make their first live daytime talk show appearance on “The View,” THURSDAY, OCTOBER 6 (11:00 a.m.-12:00 noon, ET) on the ABC Television Network. Their appearance is part of the show’s continuing “Red, White & View” campaign highlighting interviews and informational segments that promote civic responsibility.
Huntsman recently resigned from his post as Ambassador to China. He served as the 16th Governor of Utah and in the administrations of four United States presidents. Huntsman has eight brothers and sisters, and was raised a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He and his wife have seven children. As former First Lady of Utah, Mary Kaye Huntsman developed a number of programs to help support children and teenagers deal with adversity.
In September 2008, “The View” launched its highly successful “Red, White & View” campaign highlighting interviews and informational segments helping to promote civic responsibility during the election season. The “Red, White & View” campaign is another example of how “The View” establishes itself as an important player in the political process.
Celebrating its 15th Season, live, Tuesday, September 6, 2011, “The View” continues its original promise of five women, diverse points of view, tackling the hottest topics in the news, a formula proven to deliver one extraordinary show. Often imitated but never duplicated, “The View” is a certified part of the American zeitgeist, thereby establishing that there is no show like “The View.” “The View,” an innovative live, daily daytime talk show from executive producers Barbara Walters and Bill Geddie, launched on August 11, 1997. Since that time, “The View” has grown into a pop culture phenomenon, making television history in 2010 with guest President Barack Obama, the first time a sitting U.S. President would visit a daytime talk show.
“The View” features Daytime Emmy Award-winning hosts Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd. It’s the original forum in which real women discuss everyday issues, share their opinions and engage in colorful conversations. “The View,” broadcast in HDTV and produced in 2-channel stereo sound, is now available to watch online daily at 4:00 p.m., ET/1:00 p.m., PT on the ABC Digital Full Episode Player at ABC.com. “The View” is produced by ABC Daytime and Ms. Walters’ Barwall Productions, with Ms. Walters serving as executive producer along with Bill Geddie, who also serves as executive producer for “The Barbara Walters Specials.” “The View” is directed by Mark Gentile.
