Former Blaze TV host Tomi Lahren, now finished with a lawsuit against former employer The Blaze, says she's open to working for Fox News or MSNBC "as long as I could be me" in an interview with Playboy magazine published Tuesday.
When asked if she would work at Fox News, Lahren called it "the mecca" of conservative media.
"Of course I would. I mean, that’s the mecca," the 24-year-old said.
"But I don’t care what the outlet is," she continued. "I would work for MSNBC if I could be me and be authentic and genuine, and do what I do."
Media insiders feel Fox News is the most obvious choice for the outspoken conservative to land, with Newsmax TV and a rumored new conservative network being two other possibilities.
"That’s the thing about me: I can learn and I can grow, but you’re not getting some empty vessel that you can make with it what you want. I think I’ve proven time and time again that I’m not easily tamed. I would consider going anywhere. But I just want to be able to pursue what’s next. I want the freedom to find that out."
Lahren sued The Blaze and owner Glenn Beck in early April after a dispute over a March appearance on ABC's "The View," during which Lahren said she is pro-abortion rights and criticized conservative anti-abortion activists. Beck and The Blaze eventually countersued Lahren.
But the two sides settled their cases for undisclosed terms Monday, releasing Lahren from the remaining five months of her contract. Lahren will retain control of her Facebook page, which has millions of followers and became popular for its clips of Lahren's viral, frequently controversial "Final Thoughts" segment.
Lahren is now able to pursue new employment regardless if the network competes with The Blaze.
“Ms. Lahren is relieved to have this litigation behind her,” her attorney Brian Lauten said in a statement.
“She looks forward to connecting with her audience and fan base on the pressing political issues facing our country in the days to come.”
The Blaze said a statement Monday that it is “pleased to announce that the relationship with Tomi Lahren has concluded.”
