Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling is reportedly joining Breitbart.

{mosads}Schilling, a possible Senate candidate who supports Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, will start hosting a daily online radio show, New York Magazine reported.

The show will include political commentary and calls from listeners, according to the publication.

Breitbart will announce the hire on Monday.

Schilling was previously fired from ESPN after sharing a post on Facebook.

In that post, Schilling wrote: “A man is a man no matter what they call themselves. I don’t care what they are, who they sleep with, men’s room was designed for the penis, women’s not so much. Now you need laws telling us differently? Pathetic.”

“He got kicked off ESPN for his conservative views,” Breitbart Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow said, according to New York Magazine.

“He’s a really talented broadcaster.” 

Schilling said earlier this month he wants to run for Senate in 2018 to unseat Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). But he said the decision will come down to how he and his wife “feel this would affect our marriage and our kids.”

The former baseball star sparked backlash last week when he asked CNN’s Jake Tapper to explain how Jewish people could be Democrats during an interview.

“As a person who’s practicing the Jewish faith and has since you were young, I don’t understand — and maybe this is the amateur nonpolitician in me — I don’t understand how people of Jewish faith can back the Democratic Party,” he said last week.

Schilling later Friday defended his question amid criticism.

“I’m apparently an anti-Semite now because … I have the audacity to ask someone of the Jewish faith why and how they believe people of the Jewish faith vote Democrat,” Schilling said.
 
“I mean, God forbid, I listen to someone of the faith rather than the media who clearly are not biased and don’t have an agenda.”
