Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson is making the jump from reality TV to cable news personality. The Fox News Network has hired him as a contributor, the network announced today. Robertson will also host a new Fox News Radio podcast set to premiere on April 4.
The Willie Robertson Podcast will focus on matters Robertson is already well known for, framed as “faith and family,” in keeping with the evangelical views he often expresses on Duck Dynasty and in public appearances. Robertson has already appeared numerous times on the network as a guest.
Robertson has endorsed GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump, praising him as “a friend of the Second Amendment.” The move comes as Fox continues its low-temperature feud with Trump over Fox anchor Megyn Kelly.
