Bill Shine, the executive vice president of programming for Fox News, hailed Carville's arrival in a statement on Thursday
“James’ successful and storied career in politics over several decades is an enormous asset to FOX News," Shine said. "We are privileged to have him lend his breadth of experience, wit and dynamic perspective on the network.”
Carville won political stardom for advising Bill Clinton in the 1992 presidential race and later became a fixture on CNN. After Jeff Zucker was tapped to serve as president of CNN, Carville and his wife, the Republican adviser Mary Matalin, both left the network last year.
Carville hasn't shied away from Fox News through the years. He even appeared on the conservative cable news channel on Tuesday.
Carville did not immediately respond to TPM's request for comment.
