A former fixture on Fox News who was in the spotlight on election night has resurfaced with a new job. “Dick Morris, the former Fox News contributor who became synonymous with the fact-denying right-wing echo-chamber during the 2012 elections, has been tapped to host an afternoon show on Philadelphia’s WPHT radio station,” Politico.com reports.
Morris reportedly confirmed the news Thursday at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland (CPAC).
“Morris is taking the spot left vacant by Michael Smerconish, the radio personality and MSNBC political analyst, who is moving his show to Sirius XM in April,” Politico adds.
Politico reports separately that Morris had unkind words for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. The piece quotes Morris saying: “You notice [Christie’s] not speaking here today because after Barack let him drive in Air Force One, he bought him an ice cream cone. [My new radio audience] will include the swing state of Pennsylvania that we need to restore to being a swing state. And I look forward to the opportunity to speak for four hours [daily] without anybody interrupting me.”
