George Will Bolts ABC for Fox News!
4 years ago

Washington Post columnist and conservative commentator George Will is leaving  his longtime slot at ABC News and joining Fox News, his new network announced Tuesday.
Will has  been with ABC since the early 1980s — and a panelist on "This Week" since the  program began in 1981, said the Daily Caller, which first reported the  news.
The Daily Caller  noted Will has been absent recently from his spot on "This Week with George  Stephanopoulos."

 Will — a Pulitzer Prize winner for commentary for his  newspaper writing — will be doing analysis and commentary for Fox News,  including on the panels of "Special Report with Bret Baier" and "Fox News  Sunday," the network said.

“We are delighted to have someone of George’s  stature join Fox News," Michael Clemente, the network's senior vice president  for news, said in a statement. "His wisdom is enduring and his achievements are  far too long to list."

 Will joins fellow Washington Post columnist  Charles Krauthammer in the Fox News stable. Before joining ABC News, Will  was the Washington editor of National Review and on the staff of former Senator  Gordon Allott, R-Colo., from 1970 to 1972.
He's also written books on  political theory including, "Statecraft as Soulcraft: What Government Does,”  "The New Season: A Spectator's Guide to the 1988 Election" and "Restoration:  Congress, Term Limits and The Recovery of Deliberative Democracy” — and a  best-selling book on baseball titled “Men at Work."
