While Sean Spicer is headed for the new season of “Dancing with the Stars,” the woman who replaced him is also headed to TV.

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is joining Fox News as a contributor, where she will provide political commentary and analysis on all of the Fox platforms, the network announced Thursday.

She will make her first appearance Sept. 6 on “Fox & Friends.”

Sanders left the White House in June after assuming the role in July 2017. Her tenure was marked by a strained relationship with the press and fewer daily press briefings.

Spicer was the first press secretary for the Trump administration. Stephanie Grisham is the current occupant.

She is the daughter of former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, who is also a Fox contributor. Rumors had circulated of a possible run for governor in her home state.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
