Sarah Palin has signed a deal to become a contributor to Fox News. What she will be contributing is unclear, but the former Alaska Governor will be a fixture.
The network confirmed Palin would appear on the network on a regular basis as part of a multi-year contract, the financial terms of which are not disclosed.
She will not have her own regular show, a person with knowledge of the deal said. Instead she will host a series that will run on Fox News on occasion.
Palin supporters will surely applaud the move, as they would anything she does, while her critics won't be watching. Some suggested titles for her series.
- You Betcha!
- North to the Future ... of TV!
- Paling Around with Palin
- Going Rogue ... Yes, Again
- The Week in Levi Johnston Gossip
- Full of (Pit)Bull: The Sarah Palin Hour
Goodbye, Governor's mansion. Hello, conservative television!
Many suspected that when Palin resigned as Alaska Governor last summer, she was doing so to pursue some sort of lucrative career in television or media.
The Fox News arrangement, however, would not seem to be all-encompassing, and appears to give the mother of five room for her other pursuits, as well.
The deal could be formally announced as early as this afternoon, and may provide additional details as to what we can expect from Sarah's Fox News foray.
We just hope she wears that blue McCain visor.
