Fox News Hires Mark Sanford

October 21, 2011

Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford will join Fox News as a contributor, the network confirmed on Friday.

A Fox spokesperson said Sanford will start in the coming weeks, and confirmed that he will be present at the network's January 16 debate in Myrtle Beach, S.C. The network would not elaborate on the role Sanford will play at that debate.

Sanford was widely considered a potential Republican presidential candidate before it became public in June 2009 that he had made several secret trips to Argentina to carry on an affair with Maria Belen Chapur, a woman he called his "soul mate." At the time, his staff famously claimed that he had been hiking on the Appalachian Trail.

The New York Times first reported the news of Sanford's hire by Fox.
