Sarah Palin and Fox News are going their separate ways.
According to the NY Times, the decision to part ways was mutual.
Palin was signed to a reported $1 million two-year-contact in January 2010. That agreement came to an end this month and was simply not renewed by Fox News and Sarah Palin.
A source told Real Clear Politics:
“It’s my understanding that Gov. Palin was offered a contract by FOX, and she decided not to renew the arrangement. She remains focused on broadening her message of common-sense conservatism across the country and will be expanding her voice in the national discussion.”
Bill Shine, an executive vice president at Fox, said in a statement:
“We have thoroughly enjoyed our association with Governor Palin. We wish her the best in her future endeavors.”
Palin was Fox News’ golden girl after her failed bid at the vice presidency in 2008. She frequently appeared on the network and after signing a contract with the network in 2010 Fox had a studio built in her Alaska home.
The relationship took a turn for the worst, however, when Fox cancelled an appearance by Palin at the Republican National Convention.
Do you think Fox News made the right decision to cut ties with Sarah Palin?
