His reality TV gig clearly in its twilight years, one Duck Dynasty star is making moves at Fox News.
The network on Thursday announced that Willie Robertson has joined the cable news network as a contributor, simultaneously inking a pact with Fox News Radio to launch a weekly podcast series.
Perhaps the most public member of the Robertson clan, at least since father Phil Robertson derailed the A&E show’s pop-culture saturation with incendiary remarks about gay people and the Jim Crow South, Willie’s weekly series will focus on “faith and family” with occasional celebrity guest interviews. The first three episodes will bow April 4.
The 45-minute podcast will stream on Fox News Radio’s website, iTunes and most other podcasting platforms.
Willie Robertson is no stranger to Fox News Channel. He has made numerous appearances, including with wife Korie on the network’s New Year’s Eve countdown.
