Outspoken blonde Tomi Lahren has landed a contributor gig at Fox News.
If you hear a collective shriek around the nation’s newsrooms, this announcement may have something to do with it.
“FOX News Channel (FNC) has signed conservative commentator Tomi Lahren as a contributor. Lahren will have a signature role on an FNC digital product currently in development and will also offer political commentary to the network’s opinion programming, primarily Hannity,” a release from the network states.
Lahren had appeared on FNC Sean Hannity‘s program earlier in the summer to do his closing opinion segment. She’ll fittingly make her official debut appearance Wednesday night on Hannity’s program. With Hannity by her side, she may be unstoppable.
“I give her a one contract term,” a Washington journalist told The Mirror anonymously, making Lahren sound like a politician.
“Tomi has great legs, and like her entranced viewers she is a mouth-drooler,” said another D.C. journalist.
But she also has a fan: “It’s the good idea, the whole point is getting people to watch your television program. She’s a good-looking girl with an animated opinion,” remarked another Washington journalist.
Before FNC, Tomi worked as a communications aide at Great America Alliance (GAA), a Super PAC supporting President Donald Trump’s 2020 re-election bid. Previously, she worked at Glenn Beck‘s The Blaze — after which she sued him and the company and won the rights to her Facebook page. Before that, she hosted On Point with Tomi Lahren at One America News Network.
Lahren has a fierce 4.4 million following on Facebook.
But her past employment at The Blaze is sketchy — The Daily Caller reported that she had a tough time getting along with many of her coworkers, at one point even making employees microwave her butt pads.
The Blaze fired her after she appeared on ABC’s The View and said she was pro-choice. Beck has contended that her firing had nothing to do with her pro-life stance. He has also said he wished he fired her the day he met her.
Lahren graduated from the University of Nevada with a B.A. in broadcast journalism and political science.
