Sebastian Gorka is joining Fox News as a national security strategist, the network and former White House adviser confirmed Wednesday.

Gorka, who was a contributor on Fox News before joining the Trump administration, told The Hill he is “excited” to return to Fox News.

He said he won’t miss appearing on other networks, dismissing them as “the fake news industrial complex.”

“Fox doesn't generate propaganda. Those outlets do,” he told The Hill. “I went on them as a deputy assistant to the president to push back on the literal propaganda they were pumping. Now I've got another role to play with Fox News — which is just crushing it in terms of viewership, and there's a very good reason for that. They speak truthfully about this administration, unlike everybody else." 

Sean Hannity first made the announcement on his radio show. 

"I can officially announce today he is a Fox News national security strategist," Hannity said on the air, calling Gorka a "true patriot and an amazing political analyst." 

"It's in large part, really, thanks to you, Sean," Gorka told Hannity. "It's great to be back as part of the superb Fox family."

Gorka has been a regular on Hannity's television show since it moved to its 9 p.m. timeslot at the end of October.

Gorka left the White House in August. He said previously that he planned to remain a free agent without an exclusive contract at any one news organization.
