After he left the Republican Party and Fox News declined to renew his contract, George Will became a free agent. Still a conservative columnist, he continued to write solid columns while remaining highly critical of Donald Trump.

However, he’s not going to be off the air much longer. MSNBC and NBC News have signed Will on as a contributor, according to Politico’s On Media.

A conservative columnist, Will broke from the Republican Party in June over candidate Donald Trump’s controversial comments about a judge with Mexican heritage, and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s ultimate endorsement of Trump.

Since January, Will has been an increasingly regular presence on MSNBC, with the contributor deal formalizing the relationship. Will joins two others who have recently become contributors to the network: former White House press secretary Josh Earnest and New York Times White House correspondent Glenn Thrush.

Will joins the likes of former Fox News personalities Megyn Kelly and Greta van Susteren as part of the MSNBC family.
