Palin: Offer to Renew FOX Contract Reportedly Declined
Posted by Jackie Siciliano on January 25, 2013
Supporters of Sarah Palin knew that her contract with FOX was set to expire at the end of 2012 but over the last three weeks absolutely nothing was leaked regarding those contract negotiations. Today, that all changed with breaking news from Real Clear Politics:
Sarah Palin Parts Ways With FOX News
After a three-year run as a paid contributor to the nation’s highest-rated cable news channel, Sarah Palin and FOX News have cut ties, according to a source close to the former Alaska governor.
“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. “She remains focused on broadening her message of common-sense conservatism across the country and will be expanding her voice in the national discussion.”
The source declined to say whether Palin would pursue a television contract with another news network, such as CNN.
Bill Shine, Executive Vice President at FOX, subsequently issued a statement to the New York Times confirming the news, saying, “We have thoroughly enjoyed our association with Governor Palin. We wish her the best in her future endeavors.” More
