Sarah Palin has left Fox News and will no longer be a paid contributor.
A source told ABC News that, although Fox offered to renew her contract, Palin chose to leave anyway.
Bill Shine, the executive vice president of programming at Fox, said in a Friday statement, "We have thoroughly enjoyed our association with Governor Palin. We wish her the best in her future endeavors."
Fox originally hired the former Republican vice-presidential candidate with the intention, as Fox explained when they hired her, to have her "host periodic episodes of Fox News Channel's 'Real American Stories,' a series exploring inspirational real-life tales of overcoming adversity throughout the American landscape.”
According to E! Online, Palin landed the gig in 2010 after ending her role as Alaska’s governor. Palin also had the ability to provide her own commentary on various political issues.
It has been reported that when her time at the network came to a close she had earned at least $1 million.
