Fox News and Sarah Palin split ways in January, but the conservative cable network and the former half-term Governor of Alaska have reached a new deal.

Palin will be returning to Fox News on June 17th as a paid contributor. She will make her first appearance on the morning show "Fox & Friends."

Palin will appear on both Fox News and Fox Business Network during daytime and prime time, according to a Fox News press release, published by the Wall Street Journal.

Ironically, Palin told BreitBart.com in January that she was leaving Fox News because: "We can't just preach to the choir. The message of liberty and true hope must be understood by a larger audience."

“I’ve had several conversations with Governor Palin in the past few weeks about her rejoining Fox News as a contributor," said Fox Chairman Roger Ailes in today's press release. "I have great confidence in her and am pleased that she will once again add her commentary to our programming. I hope she continues to speak her mind."

Sarah Palin added: “The power of Fox News is unparalleled. The role of Fox News in the important debates in our world is indispensable. I am pleased and proud to be rejoining Roger Ailes and the great people at Fox.”

Palin's previous appearances on Fox News came so often that she had a mini-studio built in her home and put husband Todd Palin to work as cameraman and producer.
