Dan Bongino Will Finally Get Paid To Appear On Fox News, Signs With Network As Contributor
Finally, Dan Bongino will get paid by Fox News.
The bombastic conservative pundit and Spygate author has been signed by the network to be a paid contributor, as first reported by Mediaite. The site reported that a Fox News spokesperson confirmed the news. We have also reached out for comments.
Bongino signing with Fox News comes on the heels of the pro-Trump commentator having his show dropped by NRATV last month. After the Daily Beast reported his show We Stand was done, Bongino lashed out and said the demise of his program was “fake news” and that the decision to end the show was his.
NRATV later stated that it made “made every attempt to retain [Bongino] in 2019.” Contemptor learned from a source with knowledge after his departure that Bongino was in discussions to potentially join Fox News as a paid commentator. Meanwhile, less than two weeks after he left NRATV, he was guest-hosting Hannity, a program in which he appears frequently.
Over the past year, Bongino has become one of President Donald Trump’s favorite on-air pundits. Besides praising Bongino to his close allies, Trump has regularly quoted Bongino on Twitter and has endorsed the thrice-failed congressional candidate’s latest critical book about the Mueller probe.
Last August, after Trump tweeted out a book endorsement for Bongino, we reported that in the six months prior Bongino had appeared on Fox programming over 160 times. Since then, he has continued to appear on Fox News on a nearly daily basis. Now, however, he will finally collect a paycheck for doing so.
