Pompeo will offer his analysis on Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network and other Fox News Media platforms.

“As a now former diplomat and member of Congress, and in this new role at Fox News Media, I intend to give viewers a candid, no-nonsense look at geopolitics, international relations and the America First policies that helped chart the course for unprecedented American prosperity and security,” Pompeo said in a statement.

He will make his first network appearance on “Fox & Friends” on Friday.

Pompeo will be joining other Trump administration officials including former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany and top economic adviser Larry Kudlow on the network, according to Reuters.
