“FOX News has been the number one news organization in the country for 17 years running and I am beyond proud to join their incredible stable of on-air contributors in providing political insights and analysis," Sanders said in a statement.
Sanders left the White House at the end of June. At the time, political media industry insiders speculated to The Hollywood Reporter that she could wind up at Fox News.
Others thought she would run for governor in Arkansas.
"I do expect Sarah to sign up with Fox News, based on mutual interest," a former White House official said at the time.
The network said that Sanders will "provide political commentary and analysis across all of FOX News Media, including FOX News Channel (FNC), FOX Business Network (FBN), FOX News Digital, FOX Nation and the radio/podcast division," starting with an appearance on the morning show Fox & Friends.
