Fox News Ends Gingrich, Santorum Contracts

Thursday, 05 May 2011 06:10 PM

WASHINGTON (AP) — Fox News Channel has ended the contracts of on-air contributors Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum as the two former lawmakers explore White House bids.

The top-rated cable news network had previously said Gingrich and Santorum would be dropped on May 1 unless they notified the network that they were not running for president.

A network spokeswoman confirmed Thursday that the contracts had been terminated.

A former House speaker from Georgia, Gingrich has been testing the waters for a presidential campaign and is expected to enter the wide-open race.

Santorum, a former U.S. senator for Pennsylvania, has established a presidential exploratory committee and frequently visited early nominating states.
