Palin heads to Fox News commentator job
January 11, 2010
ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Sarah Palin is taking her conservative message to Fox News.
An attorney for the former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate says Palin will provide some type of commentary for the cable network.
Attorney Thomas Van Flein declined to elaborate on the deal.
Palin is hugely popular with conservatives and has more than 1 million Facebook followers.
She stepped down as Alaska governor in July, 17 months before the end of her first term in office. Her resignation came less than a year after she vaulted to overnight fame as John McCain’s running mate.
Palin worked part-time as a weekend sportscaster in the 1980s for KTUU-TV in Anchorage.
