2008 Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin has been hired as a regular commentator on Fox News Channel. In a statement on the Fox News website, they report that Palin has signed a multi-year deal to offer her political commentary and analysis across all Fox News platforms, including Fox Business Channel, FoxNews.com and Fox News Radio.
"I am thrilled to be joining the great talent and management team at Fox News. It's wonderful to be part of a place that so values fair and balanced news," Palin said in a written release.
Palin will also host periodic episodes of Fox News Channel's "Real American Stories," a series exploring inspirational real-life tales of overcoming adversity throughout the American landscape that will debut in 2010.
Although Palin didn't visit the Lehigh Valley like her Democratic counterpart Joe Biden, she definitely had an impact on local politics. She's sure to have plenty of viewers on Fox News, both liberal and conservative.
"Governor Palin has captivated everyone on both sides of the political spectrum and we are excited to add her dynamic voice to the FOX News lineup," said Bill Shine, executive vice president of programming.
