Sarah Sanders is back!
When she left her role as White House Press Secretary not even two months ago, many speculated that Sarah did so to prepare to follow in her father, Mike Huckabee’s, footsteps and run for governor of Arkansas.
Now, it appears that Sarah is, indeed, following in her father’s footsteps – not as governor (yet), but as a contributor on Fox News!
Starting September 6, you can watch Sarah on the network, where she will first make an appearance on “Fox & Friends.”
After that, Sarah 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.”
So, we can expect to get a lot more from Sarah beginning next month!
The New York Times has more details on Sarah Sanders' new role as Fox News contributor:
Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the former White House press secretary, will join Fox News as a contributor next month, reinforcing the strong ties between the conservative cable network and the Trump administration.
Ms. Sanders, who left the administration less than two months ago, will make her debut on Sept. 6 on “Fox & Friends,” the network said in a statement. In her new role, she will provide political commentary and analysis across Fox properties, including Fox News and Fox Business Network as well as digital and radio outlets.
Ms. Sanders is among nearly two dozen people who hold or have held positions both in the Trump administration and at Fox News. The others include Bill Shine, the former deputy White House chief of staff and former co-president of Fox News; Heather Nauert, a former Fox News anchor and former under secretary of state; and Hope Hicks, President Trump’s former communications director, who is now the chief communications officer at Fox Corp.
The Hollywood Reporter also noted:
Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has joined the Fox News Channel as a paid, on-air contributor, the network said on Thursday.
"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 analyses," Huckabee Sanders said in a statement.
She left the White House at the end of June. At the time, political media-industry insiders speculated to The Hollywood Reporter that she could wind up at Fox News.
"I do expect Sarah to sign up with Fox News, based on mutual interest," a former White House official said at the time.
The network said that Huckabee 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," starting with an appearance on the morning show Fox & Friends.
