Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, has been telling House Republicans he will be taking a "substantial role" with Fox News, according to a Washingtonian report.

"Let's just say that when Jason told us he was headed to Fox, no one was surprised," a House GOP aide told the Washingtonian.

Chaffetz told Fox News' "Your World" in April, after announcing he would not seek re-election, "I love my family more" than being in Congress.

"I know he was gunning for it," a source close to Chaffetz told the Washingtonian. "Fox was his first choice once he announced his plans."

Chaffetz, the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said he was leaving government to enter the private sector.

"He's probably one of the most media-capable members in the House – just based on total time spent on a television camera," another source told the Washingtonian.
