Former President Donald Trump’s top economic adviser Larry Kudlow is joining Fox News as a contributor and business host, the network announced Tuesday.

“FOX News Media was among the first news organizations in the country to understand the critical importance of the relationship between Washington and Wall Street,” Kudlow said in a statement included in the press release. “I’ve long admired their insightful coverage and am excited to join many of my former colleagues now at FBN, creating a show that speaks to the real issues truly impacting Americans.”

Kudlow will “provide expert financial analysis on domestic and global affairs across all” Fox News platforms, according to the announcement. In addition, he will host a weekday program on Fox Business. More information regarding the new program have not yet been announced.

“Larry’s vast experience in policy making coupled with his intuitive on-air presence will add depth and insight to our business analysis programming,” Fox’s CEO Suzanne Scott said. “We are excited to welcome him to the FOX News Media team and look forward to creating a show that utilizes his immense expertise to help guide viewers through this unprecedented time of economic uncertainty.”

Kudlow recently criticized Trump after the former president’s Jan. 6 rally in Washington, D.C. Following the rally, Trump supporters rioted and stormed the U.S. Capitol as lawmakers were voting to certify the electoral college vote for President Joe Biden.

“I do believe he went too far with his rally,” Kudlow said during an interview with the Washington Examiner. “He went too far. I agree. He should have stepped in sooner.”
