Fox News hires George Will

The Daily Caller has confirmed that Fox News will announce later this afternoon that they have hired long-time Washington Post columnist George Will.

Will had been regular on ABC’s “This Week” going back to the early 1980s, but had been conspicuously absent from the program as of late.

According to a source close to the situation, Will’s role at Fox News will be to provide commentary and analysis during its daily programming.

UPDATE:

In a statement announcing the hire, FNC Executive Vice President of News Michael Clemente praised Will.

“We are delighted to have someone of George’s stature join Fox News,” Clemente said. “His wisdom is enduring and his achievements are far too long to list.”
