Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin ended her tenure at Fox News quietly at the beginning of this month, reports Politico.
A spokesperson for the cable news network confirmed to the political news site that it had not renewed its contract with Palin, who gained national notoriety after she was tapped by GOP presidential candidate John McCain as a running mate in 2008.
“When Palin was at her zenith, she made frequent appearances, and Fox installed a camera at her house,” reported Politico. “But executives consider her less relevant now, and her appearances were sometimes hampered by the vast time difference with Alaska.”
Palin’s Facebook page — which Politico notes has twice as many followers as that of Rand Paul, the GOP presidential candidate with the most followers — continue to make her an influential figure in conservative politics.
And she’ll still likely make appearances on Fox, along with other networks, as a guest, along with her show on the Sportsman Channel.
