Fox News and Sarah Palin have parted ways for the second time.

Politico reported the network decided against renewing the former vice presidential candidate’s contract in the beginning of June.

“Executives consider her less relevant now, and her appearances were sometimes hampered by the vast time difference with Alaska,” Politico said.

Palin, who has her own show on the Sportsman Channel, will continue to appear as a guest on the network, but is also free to appear on other networks.

The conservative firebrand will also be a player in 2016 congressional and governors’ races, already fielding requests by candidates to appear on their behalf.

Fox and Palin first split in early 2013 before joining forces again six months later.
