Fox News Hires Gianno Caldwell as Contributing Political Analyst

Fox News has announced that they have hired political analyst Gianno Caldwell to be a network contributor and regular commentator.

Here’s the network’s statement.

FOX News Channel (FNC) has signed Gianno Caldwell, the founder of Caldwell Strategic Consulting, as a political analyst, announced Suzanne Scott, president of programming for the network. In this capacity, he will appear across FNC and FOX Business Network’s daytime and primetime programs, providing analysis and commentary on political, financial and cultural issues.

In making the announcement, Scott said, “Gianno’s insight has been widely valued across our network, prompting healthy discussion and debate on critical issues facing the country. We are delighted to have him officially join the FOX News Channel, sharing top-notch analysis with our viewers.”

Caldwell added, “I am excited, honored and humbled to bring my political analysis exclusively to the number one cable network in the nation. FOX News has felt like family since my first appearance on the network. I am thankful for God’s continued favor throughout this journey and I am thankful for the support of my family, colleagues, and friends.”

Caldwell spoke positively of Donald Trump throughout the 2016 election, though the Republican strategist recently went viral after a news segment where Caldwell tearfully condemned the president’s handling of Charlottesville. Caldwell is expected to continue his role as special correspondent for Extra TV, as well as a contributor to The Hill.
