Ari Fleischer ‘looking forward’ to joining CNN


CNN announced Tuesday that they've hired former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer as a political contributor. Fleischer was the lead spokesman for a little over two years under President George W. Bush.

"Having worked on a successful presidential campaign and having spent 21 years in Washington, I'm looking forward to joining CNN as a regular contributor," Fleisher said in a CNN press release. It's shaping up as a red hot political year and I'm eager to lend my perspective to it."

Fleischer's hire marks his transition from sports media back into politics. After leaving the White House, he ran his own company Ari Fleischer Sports Communication.
