In a statement, Sanders praised Fox News and said she was "beyond proud" to join the network.
Sanders tweeted she is set to make her first contributor appearance September 6th on Fox & Friends.
The relationship between Fox News and the Trump White House has always been incestuous, with a door that, as The New Yorker's Jane Mayer wrote earlier this year, "swings both ways".
Sanders resigned as President Donald Trump's press secretary a few months ago and had said she was going to return home to Arkansas to spend time with her family.
This will mean lots of paid airtime for Sanders on the wingnut channel of choice at a propitious time, ahead of a possible run for governor of Arkansas in 2020. 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. Top White House communications officials such as George Stephanopoulos (ABC), Dee Dee Myers (CNBC), Jay Carney (CNN), and Robert Gibbs (NBC), among others, all went on to TV pundit careers after working for presidents.
It's hardly surprising that Sanders ended up at Fox after her tenure as White House press secretary. Prior to joining the White House, she worked on various political campaigns and was manager of the global nonprofit ONE Campaign. (Sanders has expressed interest in running for Governor of Arkansas in 2022 and a Fox News position would allow her to keep her face on Republicans' radars.) With Spicer's move, he seems to be hoping that everyone can forget about his complicity in Trump's evils and just see him as a fun clown and a nice guy.
