Gretchen Carlson to Write for Motto

Her first column appears Jan. 16.

Since filing a sexual harassment suit against former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes and leaving the network, Gretchen Carlson has been weighing the options for her next career move.

One that has now been concretized is a new position as columnist for Motto, a women-focused site launched last year by Time Inc. Her column, which she first announced this morning while guest-hosting on The Today Show, will focus on “empowering women and issues surrounding that.”

Carlson had previously made an appearance on Motto, in a video interview with Time editor at large Belinda Luscombe. The topic was dealing with setbacks.
