Sarah Palin Returning To TV As Guest Host At Conservative News Channel

Former vice presidential nominee and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) is set to return to cable news next week — this time as a guest host of a political news program on the conservative One America News Network.

“On Point with Guest Host Sarah Palin” is scheduled to run at 10 p.m. EDT for five consecutive nights starting on Monday, according to a news release from the channel.

“I didn’t get into public service to do the safe and easy things,” Palin said in a statement included in the news release. “A ship in harbor is safe, but that’s not why the ship is built!”

“Palin’s experience and insights will further the political conversation, especially meaningful as the 2016 Presidential race heats up,” said Robert Herring, Sr., chief executive of the One America News Network, in the release. “She’s been influential in helping multiple candidates on the right, including some running for the GOP Presidential nomination. Regardless of one’s political view, the discussions will be meaningful, while also being entertaining.”

Palin had served as a contributor on Fox News for several years before the network chose not to renew her contract in June. She began working for Fox in 2009 as a paid contributor.

Though Palin has remained relatively quiet so far in the 2016 election, she called Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump a “hero” after he criticized her former running mate, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), for being captured and held as a prisoner of war in Vietnam.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
