Sarah Palin Debuts on Fox News Tonight

Sarah Palin will be making her debut as a commentator on Fox News Channel on this evening's edition of "The O'Reilly Factor."

The former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee is planning to "take on America's top issues" with O'Reilly, according to Fox.

News broke yesterday that Palin would "host an occasional series that will run on the network from time to time" on the conservative news channel. Fox says she has has a "multi-year deal" to appear on the network, though terms were not disclosed.

Palin majored in journalism at the University of Idaho and worked as a weekend sports anchor in Anchorage in 1988. At left, check out one of her KTUU-TV reports, from when she was still Sarah Heath.
