NEW YORK -- October 1, 2013

FOX News Channel (FNC) has hired political columnist and author George Will as
a contributor, announced Michael Clemente, Executive Vice President of News.
In this role, he will offer analysis and commentary across FNC’s daytime and
primetime programming, including on the panels of Special Report with Bret
Baier and FOX News Sunday.

In making the announcement Clemente said, “We are delighted to have someone of
George’s stature join FOX News. His wisdom is enduring and his achievements
are far too long to list.”

Most recently, Will served as a panelist for ABC’s This Week with George
Stephanopoulos and as a commentator for ABC News, a position he has held since
1981 with the premiere of This Week with David Brinkley. In addition to his
work at the network, he wrote a syndicated column, which appeared in more than
475 newspapers and served as a contributing editor for Newsweek magazine. A
Pulitzer Prize-winner for commentary, Will has been referred to by The Wall
Street Journal as "perhaps the most powerful journalist in America.”

Prior to joining ABC News, Will was the Washington editor of National Review
and on the staff of former Senator Gordon Allott (R-CO) from 1970 to 1972.
Additionally, he has authored several books on political theory including,
"Statecraft as Soulcraft: What Government Does,” "The New Season: A
Spectator's Guide to the 1988 Election" and "Restoration: Congress, Term
Limits and The Recovery of Deliberative Democracy.” A graduate of Trinity
College, he also received a degree from Oxford University and a Ph.D. from
Princeton.
