Fox News adds Sarah Sanders to team of on-air contributors
President Donald Trump’s former press secretary has a new gig.
Fox News announced on Thursday that it had signed Sarah Huckabee Sanders as a regular contributor.
“Sanders will provide political commentary and analysis across all of FOX News Media, including FOX News Channel (FNC), FOX Business Network (FBN), FOX News Digital, FOX Nation, and the radio/podcast division,” the network said in a statement.
Sanders is expected to make her debut on Fox & Friends on Friday, Sept. 6.
From the press room to primetime
Even after spending years being hounded by the press as President Trump’s most visible communications staffer, it seems that Sanders isn’t done talking politics with the journalists at Fox News.
“Fox News has been the No. 1 news organization in the country for 17 years running and I am beyond proud to join their incredible stable of on-air contributors in providing political insights and analysis,” Sanders said.
The new role will be Sanders’ first job since leaving her post at the White House.
Trump’s long-running press secretary is actually the second in her family to join the team at Fox News; her father, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, hosted a self-titled political commentary program on the network from 2008 to 2015. But many have speculated that it isn’t just on TV where Sanders wants to follow in her dad’s footsteps.
When Sanders departed from the Trump administration, even the president himself suggested that she make a bid for the Arkansas governorship.
“She is a very special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job!” Trump tweeted. “I hope she decides to run for [g]overnor of Arkansas — she would be fantastic.”
But in a June interview with conservative radio star Hugh Hewitt, Gov. Huckabee said his daughter isn’t in any rush to pursue public office.
“The race isn’t until 2022, so for all the people who are thinking that this is imminent, it isn’t,” Huckabee said. “The truth is, she has not had time to come up for air in the past three years. So she’s going to take some time to get her kids enrolled in school in Arkansas for the fall, go to vacation, just have some downtime — which is something she hasn’t done. And, you know, then she’ll start exploring.”
