Sarah Huckabee Sanders Joins Fox News Channel as Contributor

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will join Fox News Channel as a contributor, and will make her debut in September on “Fox & Friends,” one of President Trump’s favorite shows. Sanders is the third former Trump administration official to join Fox News in some capacity.

“Fox News has been the number one news organization in the country for 17 years running, and I am beyond proud to join their incredible stable of on-air contributors in providing political insights and analysis,” Sanders said in a statement. According to a press release, she will be providing political commentary and analysis across all Fox News platforms, including Fox Business, Fox Nation and the radio/podcast division.

Sanders is also considered a potential frontrunner for the Arkansas gubernatorial election in 2022. Mr. Trump has expressed his support for Sanders running for governor, saying that “she would be fantastic.” Her father, Mike Huckabee, previously served as governor of Arkansas.

“I hope she decides to run for Governor of Arkansas – she would be fantastic. Sarah, thank you for a job well done!” the president tweeted in June.

Sanders also recently attended a fundraising dinner as part of the Republican Governors Association (RGA) two-day retreat, fueling speculation that she would launch a bid. However, she is not expected to make a formal decision about running for at least two years.
