According to a report from The Hill, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich will be returning to Fox News come August 1. Previously, his agreement was suspended in early July when it was announced he was a top contender for Donald Trump’s vice presidential pick. However, with Indiana Governor Mike Pence being the final choice, it appears Gingrich’s arrangement with Fox has changed.
Although he was no long on Fox, the former House Speaker has still been in the media spotlight. Recently he praised Trump’s speech at the Republican National Convention, calling it a “revolutionary moment” for the GOP.
“I thought it was a very comprehensive speech. I thought it was very deliberately designed. He had a series of parts of the speech that were designed, I think, to appeal to African-Americans in the inner city, to appeal to the LGBTQ community, to appeal to a number of people,” Gingrich said. “He didn’t automatically say it would have been a traditional Republican speech.”

Now that Gingrich no longer presents a conflict of interest between Fox News and himself, he will be returning to the channel on Monday. He served as a political commentator on CNN for three years before switching networks in October 2015.
