Caitlyn Jenner hired by Fox News as contributor and commentator 'first appearance on Sean Hannity's program'

Caitlyn Jenner has joined Fox News as a contributor. Jenner is “humbled” to become part of the news network and to be able to “speak directly” to Americans.

She said in a statement she was “humbled by this unique opportunity” to speak directly to Fox’s audience.

The former Olympic decathlete ran an unsuccessful campaign for California governor last year. The network said she’ll offer commentary and analysis across various Fox News Media platforms.

“Caitlyn’s story is an inspiration to us all,” said Suzanne Scott, Fox News Media CEO. “She is a trailblazer in the LGBTQ+ community and her illustrious career spans a variety of fields that will be a tremendous asset for our audience.”

Jenner won the Olympic gold medal in the decathlon in 1976. She later came out as transgender and identifies as a female.
