Conservative political analyst and former long-time Fox News contributor Stephen Hayes has signed a new deal with NBC to appear as an analyst across all the NBC News properties.
Hayes, who announced he was leaving Fox News in November citing his concern with the direction in which the network was headed, this week joined NBC as a regular contributor ahead of the midterm elections later this year.
Hayes is the co-founder of moderately conservative The Dispatch, and served as a political analyst and contributor on Fox News from 2009 to 2021, when he and his colleague Johah Goldberg wrote in The Dispatch they were leaving the network because “the voices of the responsible are being drowned out by the irresponsible.”
Now, NBC will feature Hayes as a political analyst and contributor on shows like “Today,” beginning this Sunday when he is scheduled to appear on “Meet the Press.”
One of the show’s moderators, Chuck Todd, said in a statement, “I’ve known and worked with Steve Hayes on and off for nearly 25 years. He is a principled reporter and analyst who always puts truth and facts above emotion and sentiment.”
Fox News received flack over Tucker Carlson’s three-part series about January 6th that aired in late 2021 and spurred Hayes and Goldberg’s departure. Bret Bair and Chris Wallace reportedly voiced concerns over the series and Wallace left Fox for CNN+ just weeks later.
