Washington Post columnist and conservative commentator George Will is leaving his longtime slot at ABC News and joining Fox News, his new network announced Tuesday.

Will has been with ABC since the early 1980s — and a panelist on "This Week" since the program began in 1981, said the Daily Caller, which first reported the news.

The Daily Caller noted Will has been absent recently from his spot on "This Week with George Stephanopoulos."

Will — a Pulitzer Prize winner for commentary for his newspaper writing — will be doing analysis and commentary for Fox News, including on the panels of "Special Report with Bret Baier" and "Fox News Sunday," the network said.

“We are delighted to have someone of George’s stature join Fox News," Michael Clemente, the network's senior vice president for news, said in a statement. "His wisdom is enduring and his achievements are far too long to list."

Will joins fellow Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer in the Fox News stable.
Before joining ABC News, Will was the Washington editor of National Review and on the staff of former Senator Gordon Allott, R-Colo., from 1970 to 1972.

He's also written books on political theory including, "Statecraft as Soulcraft: What Government Does,” "The New Season: A Spectator's Guide to the 1988 Election" and "Restoration: Congress, Term Limits and The Recovery of Deliberative Democracy” — and a best-selling book on baseball titled “Men at Work."
