Sarah Palin will soon be a contributor on Fox News Channel, the New York Times reports.

The controversial former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate will not have a regular program of her own on Fox News, unlike 2008 GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee. But in a multi-year deal, she will reportedly appear as a contributor and "host an occasional series that will run on the network from time to time."

According to the Times, Palin's compensation was not disclosed. A formal announcement of the deal could come this afternoon.
