Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin is rejoining Fox News as a contributor, network Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes told the Wall Street Journal.

In January, it was reported that the network was choosing not to renew her contract.

“I’ve had several conversations with Governor Palin in the past few weeks about her rejoining Fox News as a contributor,” Mr. Ailes said Thursday. “I have great confidence in her and am pleased that she will once again add her commentary to our programming.”

The outspoken Republican’s first appearance back will be with “Fox & Friends” on Monday morning.

Mr. Ailes told the Associated Press in 2011, “I hired Sarah Palin because she was hot and got ratings,” WSJ reported.
