Newsmax adds Andrew Giuliani as a contributor
Conservative news outlet Newsmax has hired Andrew Giuliani as a contributor, The New York Times reports.
Giuliani announced the news Thursday on the radio show of his father, Rudy Giuliani, a former adviser and personal attorney for former President Trump. He started in the role this week.
A Newsmax spokesperson confirmed Andrew Giuliani started working as a contributor this month.
He had appeared on Newsmax as a guest several times while he was still working at the White House, a Newsmax spokesperson said.
Like his father, Giuliani also worked in the Trump White House and the Newsmax job is, he said, a way “to continue the meaning” he had found during his time there.
In 2017, Trump hired Giuliani as an associate director in the Office of Public Liaison, a department that manages relationships outside interest groups. The next year Trump promoted him, even though Giuliani had his West Wing access revoked.
Last December, Trump also gave Giuliani a spot on the United States Memorial Holocaust Council. Giuliani has described Trump as a “father figure.”
Giuliani is not the only Trump staffer hired by Newsmax. Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer launched his show “Spicer & Co.” on the channel in March of 2020.
Separately, Fox News on Tuesday announced that former Trump spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany would be joining that cable outlet as a contributor.
