Sinclair Broadcast Group has hired Boris Epshteyn, a former special assistant to President Donald Trump, as a chief political analyst who will provide insight on major political news stories.

Epshteyn, an assistant communications director for surrogate operations for Trump, managed the surrogate operation of the White House and administration, said a Sinclair release.

Born in the Soviet Union in 1982, Epshteyn emigrated to the U.S. in 1993 with his family, and served as a surrogate for Trump during the campaign before taking responsibility for the White House's TV surrogates strategy, said The Hill.

He also served as communications director for the inaugural committee, noted Sinclair. His background is in investment banking and he's a licensed attorney with expertise in international law, finance, and securities.

"I am honored and grateful to be joining the distinguished and extremely talented team at Sinclair Broadcast Group," said Epshteyn. "I greatly admire Sinclair's mission to provide thoughtful impactful reporting throughout the country. I look forward to contributing my voice to the ongoing dialogue with the American people."

Sinclair owns, operates, and/or provides services to 173 television stations in 81 markets, broadcasting 514 channels and having affiliations with all the major networks.

"We understand the frustration with government and traditional institutions," said Scott Livingston, vice president of news for Sinclair Television Group. "Mr. Epshteyn brings a unique perspective to the political conversation and will play a pivotal role in our mission to dissect the stories in the headlines and to better inform and empower our viewers."
