Sarah Palin joins Fox News as contributor

Former V.P. candidate to become regular commentator

Sarah Palin has become the latest prominent Republican politician to sign on as a contributor to the Fox News Channel, under a multiyear agreement announced Monday.

Palin joins former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee — another potential aspirant for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012 — on Fox’s roster of commentators, which also includes former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and President George W. Bush’s key advisor Karl Rove.

The deal does not call for Palin to regularly host a program on the channel, but she will occasionally host “Real American Stories,” a series “exploring inspirational real-life tales of overcoming adversity throughout the American landscape” that FNC said will make its debut this year.

Palin’s book “Going Rogue” has become a national bestseller, but she has been coy about her long-term political plans since resigning as governor of Alaska — a move that took the political world by surprise. The narrow nature of her relationship with Fox News will apparently provide enough time and latitude to weigh future options.

Palin has frequently been critical of her treatment at the hands of other news organizations and not-so-subtly echoed those sentiments in the statement announcing her new role.
