Former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders has joined Fox News as a contributor, the network announced on Thursday.

Sanders, who exited the White House in June, will make her debut before a live studio audience episode of "Fox & Friends" on September 6.

In a statement, Sanders praised Fox News and said she was "beyond proud" to join the network.

Sanders signing with the network is just the latest example in a revolving door between the Trump administration and Fox.

Hope Hicks, the former White House communications director, joined Fox Corporation in 2018 as executive vice president and chief communications officer.

And in July, Raj Shah, the former White House deputy press secretary, joined Fox Corporation as a senior vice president.

The revolving door has also worked in the opposite direction.

Bill Shine, the former co-president of Fox News, joined the White House in 2018 in a top communications role. Shine exited the White House earlier this year.
