Fox News has been adding new faces this year, and Tuesday they landed a big one: conservative commentator George Will who will be ended a 32-year relationship with ABC News and This Week. Fox announced their new hire in a press release Tuesday: Will, 72, has been named a contributor for Special Report with Bret Baier and Fox News Sunday in the new deal. The latter will be where Will spends most of his time, as he did on ABC, providing yet another perspective from the right for Fox's Sunday morning show.
The reason for the Will's change of job is actually quite simple: it's because he didn't want to change his location, the Huffington Post's Michael Calderone reports:
With George Stephanopoulos hosting Good Morning America in New York during the week, the Sunday show, long based in Washington, D.C., now only tapes in the capital about once every four weeks. And Will, who lives in the D.C. area, informed ABC News that traveling several weekends a month was becoming tougher for him, according to the spokesman.
