Fox News Media named former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to a contributor role, adding to the number of former Trump officials offering commentary across its media holdings.
Pompeo, who has been identified as a potential Republican candidate for the 2024 presidential election, will make his first appearance Friday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends.” He will contribute to other parts of the Fox News portfolio, including Fox Business Network’s daytime and primetime programming.
In a statement, Pompeo said he intended to give viewers a “candid, no-nonsense look at geopolitics, international relations and the America First policies” of the Trump administration.
He is the latest in a parade of Trump White House officials to come aboard Fox News. The Fox Corporation-backed outlet recently named former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany as a contributor and co-host of its “Outnumbered” daytime talk show. McEnany was recently spotted as a panelist on the new Fox News late-night talk program “Gutfeld!’ Larry Kudlow, a former Trump economic adviser, now hosts his own late-day program on Fox Business. Lara Trump, a daughter in law of the former president who has been vocal about her interest in seeking a U.S. Senate seat in North Carolina, was recently named a contributor.
