FOX News Channel announced Thursday Democratic strategist James Carville will join the network as a contributor.
Carville will appear across various programming offering political commentary on the news of the day.
In making the announcement, Executive Vice President of Programming Bill Shine said, “James’ successful and storied career in politics over several decades is an enormous asset to FOX News. We are privileged to have him lend his breadth of experience, wit and dynamic perspective on the network.”
With an extensive career in the political arena, Carville notably surfaced on the national scene when he was the lead strategist in the successful 1992 presidential campaign for former President Bill Clinton.
Over the past 10 years, Carville transitioned his work from domestic political campaigns to foreign consulting and eventually television, serving as a political contributor to CNN. He was also a co-host of the first incarnation of Crossfire from 2002 until its cancellation in 2005.
Currently a political science professor at Tulane University, Carville is also the author of several books, including the most recent one published earlier this month, “Love & War: Twenty Years, Three Presidents, Two Daughters and One Louisiana Home,” which he co-authored with his wife, Republican strategist Mary Matalin.
Carville earned a B.A. and J.D. from Louisiana State University.
