Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post conservative columnist George Will has joined both MSNBC and NBC News.
Will was a contributor at Fox News since 2013, with his contract expiring in January as Fox decided not to renew. Prior to his time at Fox News, Will worked on-air for three decades at ABC. He is also a columnist at the Washington Post.
Will’s addition at MSNBC joins several other prominent conservative-leaning journalists at the network often criticized for holding a liberal slant. Recent additions to MSNBC and NBC News include Megyn Kelly and Greta Van Susteren, both also formerly at Fox News, and also Nicolle Wallace, former spokeswoman for President George W. Bush.
George Will also made news on his own during the summer of 2016, when he announced he was dropping his registration in the Republican Party after then-candidate Donald Trump made statements about the heritage of a San Diego-based federal judge.
