James Carville Joins Fox News Channel As Contributor

James Carville, the Democratic strategist, former Clinton aide and one-time CNN personality, has joined Fox News Channel as a contributor, the 21st Century Fox-owned network disclosed Thursday.

“James’ successful and storied career in politics over several decades is an enormous asset to Fox News,” said Bill Shine, exec veep of programming at the network. ” We are privileged to have him lend his breadth of experience, wit and dynamic perspective on the network.”

The hire is likely to surprise, as several of Fox News contributors are known for espousing a point of view in opposition to that of Democrats.  Among the contributors Fox News has signed in recent months are Sarah Palin, the former governor of Alaska and former Republican candidate for U.S. Vice President; Herman Cain, an early Republican candidate for President in the most recent election; and Scott Brown, a former Republican U.S. Senator.

Carville is expected to appear across various programming, offering political commentary on the news of the day.

He was a co-host of the first incarnation of “Crossfire” on CNN,  from 2002 until its cancellation in 2005.

Carville is currently a political science professor at Tulane University.
