Sarah Palin's Contract Not Renewed by Fox News
Sarah Palin, former half-term Alaska Governor and GOP vice presidential candidate, did not have her $1 million contract with Fox News renewed, reports the New York Times.
A statement from Bill Shine, an executive vice president at Fox, read: “We have thoroughly enjoyed our association with Governor Palin. We wish her the best in her future endeavors.”
Palin had a small television studio built in her Wasilla, Alaska home to appear on Fox News.
As of last week, Palin and Fox were negotiating a possible new contract. Palin reportedly received $1 million per year as part of her former contract, which was for three years.
"Fox almost surely offered a lesser amount to Ms. Palin in the recent negotiations,” reports the New York Times.
Relations between Palin and Fox CEO Roger Ailes have been rocky as Ailes has allegedly called her “stupid” in private.
Last year, Palin went on Facebook to complain about what she said was Fox News' decision to cancel her appearances during the third day of the Republican National Convention.
A source close to Palin told RealClearPolitics.com: “It’s my understanding that Governor Palin was offered a contract by FOX, and she decided not to renew the arrangement. She remains focused on broadening her message of common-sense conservatism across the country and will be expanding her voice in the national discussion.”
