The former CNN anchor, fired after going on a controversial rant late last year, will become a football radio announcer for Florida International University.

NEW YORK - Former CNN anchor Rick Sanchez, who was fired last fall after calling The Daily Show host Jon Stewart a bigot and saying that Jewish people run the media, has a new job.

According to the Associated Press, Florida International University has hired the Miami native as a radio announcer for the new football season that kicks off this fall. He will serve as color analyst on WMCU-1080 AM alongside play-by-play announcer Tony Calatayud.

According to the AP, two of Sanchez's sons will attend FIU this fall. FIU's football season begins Sept. 1.

Sanchez said in a statement that he was honored when FIU asked him to be part of its football broadcasts.
