Fox News announced today that conservative columnist and author George Will is leaving ABC News, and joining Fox:
“We are delighted to have someone of George’s stature join Fox News. His wisdom is enduring and his achievements are far too long to list,” said Michael Clemente, the network’s senior vice president for news, in a statement.
Will was a founding panelist on This Week with David Brinkley in 1981 and continued on throughout the show’s many changes over the years.
In his new job at Fox he will provide commentary and analysis on Special Report with Bret Baier and Fox News Sunday.
