Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will join Fox News as a contributor, according to the company.

What are the details?

On Wednesday, Fox announced that Sanders will provide political commentary and analysis for Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network, Fox News Digital, Fox Nation, and Fox radio division.

In a statement, Sanders lauded the accomplishments of her new company.

"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," she said.

According to Variety, Sanders will make her first appearance as a network employee on "Fox & Friends" on Sept. 6.

Sanders vacated her role at the White House in June after serving as its press secretary since 2017.

Sanders' father, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R), is also a Fox News contributor.

Anything else?

It's hardly surprising that Sanders ended up at Fox after her tenure as White House press secretary.

In June, political media industry leaders speculated that Sanders would move into television after her stint in the White House.

At the time, a former White House official even said that they expected Sanders would eventually end up with Fox.

"I do expect Sarah to sign up with Fox News, based on mutual interest," the official told The Hollywood Reporter. "Sarah is right at home with Trump's base, even as she was ostracized by the mainstream."
