“Sarah Huckabee Sanders, one of the more controversial holders of the office of White House Press Secretary in recent memory, will join the Fox News Channel as a contributor,” reports our good friend Brian Steinberg for Variety.
The story continues, “The former Trump administration advisor is expected to contribute commentary to the Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network, Fox News Digital and the Fox Nation streaming service, the Fox Corporation unit announced Thursday.
“She is expected to make her debut on ‘Fox & Friends’ during one its next shows with a live audience, on September 6.”
The Hill’s take on this story notes that “Sanders worked on the Trump campaign and later in the White House, where she spent approximately two years as press secretary. In that role, she oversaw the demise of the daily press briefing and had an at-times strained relationship with the press corps.
“While Sanders did not hold regular briefings in the White House, she did appear regularly on Fox News programming to take questions from anchors.”
