In late January, McEnany stated she had an “employment agreement with Fox News, starting work in January” in a report published by watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.
At the time, a Fox News spokesperson said McEnany was “not currently an employee or contributor” at the network.
Though other former Trump officials have become Fox News contributors after the demise of the administration, this is not McEnany’s first foray into cable news. She had been a contributor at CNN, and was also previously Republican National Committee spokeswoman, prior to signing on as Trump’s press secretary in the spring of 2020.
