Political columnist and author George Will is joining Fox News as a contributor, executive vice president of news Michael Clemente announced today. Will jumps to Fox News after more than 30 years at ABC News, where he was a political commentator and panelist for “This Week.”
“We are delighted to have someone of George’s stature join FOX News. His wisdom is enduring and his achievements are far too long to list,” Clemente said in a statement.
“As all his readers know, George is brilliant. Those of us lucky enough to work with him also know that he’s a consummate gentleman,” George Stephanopoulos told TVNewser in a statement. “I learned from him every week, and wish him all good things.”
He will appear across all FNC programming, including as a panelist on “Special Report with Bret Baier” and “Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace.”
