Fox News Signs Tomi Lahren as Contributor for Opinion Programming

By David Rutz

Fox News Channel has signed on conservative commentator Tomi Lahren as a contributor, the network announced Wednesday.

Lahren will have a “signature role on an FNC digital product currently in development and will also offer political commentary to the network’s opinion programming,” primarily Sean Hannity’s nightly primetime show, according to a Fox News release.

She will make her contributor debut Wednesday night on “Hannity,” whose host shares her strong support for President Donald Trump.

Lahren, 25, rose to prominence with her show “Tomi” on TheBlaze. With her large social media platform, fiery “takes” on Black Lives Matter and other hot-button topics, and support of Trump, Lahren has become a well-known figure in conservative media despite her youth.

She was fired by Glenn Beck in March for expressing support for abortion rights during an appearance on the left-leaning ABC program, “The View.”
