Sarah Palin to Go Rogue Regularly on Fox News

Network signs former vice presidential candidate to multi-year contributor deal

Last fall, when she was out promoting “Going Rogue,” Sarah Palin caused a little feud inside Fox News over which interviews with the wacky Wasillan would air first.

Now Palin has signed on as a contributor at the network.

Palin’s statement: “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.”

Financial terms of the arrangement were not disclosed.

Palin isn’t getting her own show, at least for the time being, but I wouldn’t rule it out.  For now, she’ll “provide political commentary and analysis” for Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network and foxnews.com, according to Bill Shine, FNC’s EVP of programming.

Palin will also occasionally host episodes of “Real American Stories,” Fox’s series about “exploring inspirational real-life tales of overcoming adversity throughout the American landscape.” 

That this news was apparently leaked to the New York Times early is interesting, considering the paper just ran a rather glowing profile of Fox News chief Roger Ailes — one that included this quote from an analyst: “Roger Ailes is one of the most creative talents of his generation."
