Tea party darling Sarah Palin has inked a deal to return to Fox News Channel as a regular contributor.

The former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate will make her first appearance on June 17 on the morning program "Fox & Friends," according to a press release issued by Fox News. She will appear as a contributor on various Fox News programs and on Fox Business Channel, offering her opinion on news and politics.

Palin previously served as a Fox News contributor, but left in January after being with the network for three years, a Newsmax story reported.

Fox News CEO Roger Ailes said he had several conversations with Palin over the past several weeks about having her return.

"I have great confidence in her and am pleased that she will once again add her commentary to our programming," Ailes said. "I hope she continues to speak her mind."

Details of the deal were not announced. Palin was reportedly making $1 million a year during her first stint. Howard Kurtz reported in The Daily Beast in January that she had been offered a fraction of that to stay because Ailes felt her star had faded.

Palin noted in an August Facebook post that Fox had canceled all her scheduled appearances, but with the new contract all seems to be forgiven.

"The power of Fox News is unparalleled," Palin said in the press release from Fox. "The role of Fox News in the important debates in our world is indispensable."
