Former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has parted ways with FOX News, after her contract with the cable network expired this month, and she decided not to renew it.
‘It’s my understanding that Gov. Palin was offered a contract by FOX, and she decided not to renew the arrangement,’ the source close to Palin told RCP, who first broke the news. ‘She remains focused on broadening her message of common-sense conservatism across the country and will be expanding her voice in the national discussion.’
Confirming the development, Bill Shine, Executive Vice President of FOX, released a statement: ‘We have thoroughly enjoyed our association with Governor Palin. We wish her the best in her future endeavors.’
Sarah signed a $1 million-a-year contract with FOX as a commentator after her term as governor of Alaska back in 2010. Her 3-year stay at FOX has been legendary and controversial, inspiring the success of the Hollywood movie Game Change.
