Sarah joins FOX News

2008 Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin is joining Fox News as a contributor, the news channel announced Monday.

The former Alaska governor, whose book, Going Rogue: An American Life, became a bestseller weeks before it was released and remains No. 2 on the New York Times bestseller list, 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.

She will also participate in special event political programming for Fox Broadcasting.

"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.

"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.

Prior to joining Sen. John McCain on the 2008 presidential ticket, Palin was the first woman to serve as governor of Alaska, taking the oath in 2006. As governor, she worked on improving resource development, education, health and transportation and infrastructure development.

Prior to holding the office of governor, Palin served two terms on the Wasilla City Council in Alaska as well as two terms as the mayor and manager of Wasilla, and worked as an oil and gas industry regulator.

Owned by News Corp, Fox News Channel is a 24-hour general news service covering breaking news as well as political, entertainment and business news, and has been the most-watched cable news channel in the country for eight years running. It features the top 13 programs in cable news and can be seen in more than 90 million homes.

Well, I think she'll at least be popular on the channel and the audience they seek. At any rate, it's a ratings-grabber for FOX. You either love her or hate her, which is a good step to being popular (i.e. Rush, Hannity, Olberman, Mathews et al), so her fans will tune in, and her haters will tune in too...donchaknow! Wink

If it keeps her off the Republican Ticket I'm all for it.

Wonder what MSNBC host she is going to smoke in the ratings.

I'm not sure what to make of this. I could understand the move if she was looking to get name recognition, but she surely doesn't need that.

Maybe she realizes she will never be president, so she's going after Rush's money... She'll never be governor again after bailing from her post. I'm with you Markwes, I'm not sure what to make of this.

Anyone seen her on Fox yet? Is it as bad as I think it will be? Does she have enough space on her hands to remember what she's supposed to say?

Haven't seen her yet, but I don't think she has as much space as Barry does on his prompters...

When all you say is how great it is to be an American and Happy Birthday Ronald Reagan, you dont need much space.

I'm trying to figure out where all the teleprompter stuff came from. Sure, Palin would no longer dare have a teleprompter, but she did have written remarks, in addition to what was written on her hand... as if no republican ever had a speech writer.

I think the teleprompter harassment came into play when he needed it to address a group of 6th graders.

And how he stumbles when he doesn't have one.
