Granholm was the first woman to be elected governor in Michigan and served two terms beginning in 2003. She has been a frequent contributor to NBC's "Meet the Press," and recently co-authored "A Governor's Story: The Fight for Jobs and America's Economic Future" with her husband, Dan Mulhern.

“The War Room” program will feature commentary by political insiders, opinion leaders and news-makers.
"I'm really interested in solutions," Granholm said to the Associated Press. "We'll be taking a deeper dive to solutions to the most pressing problems out there,” she noted.
Former Gov. Granholm, who dealt with either a Republican state House and/or Senate both of her two terms, will provide insight on her new program on how to compromise with leaders on the other side of the political spectrum.
"I'm on the left end of the spectrum,” Granholm stated. “But I've also had to be a pragmatic governor, and can explain what that's like in dealing with a Republican legislature — and how important compromise is."
The network announced that online talk-show host Cenk Uygur of "The Young Turks," will bring his program to Current TV’s primetime lineup by year-end. "The Young Turks" is scheduled to air at 7 PM Eastern, followed by “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” at 8 PM and Fmr. Governor Granholm’s “The War Room” at 9 PM.
