Fox News has reportedly hired former White House adviser Dr. Sebastian Gorka to serve as a “national security strategist.”

Left-leaning site Media Matters noted that Fox News host Sean Hannity announced on his radio show on Wednesday that Gorka would be re-joining the network where he was a contributor before taking a job with the Trump administration earlier this year.

“It’s great to be back as part of the superb Fox family,” Gorka said.

The Daily Beast reported in September that Hannity had been advocating internally for Gorka to return to Fox News, and in an interview with Hannity in September, Gorka said he’d “love to” come back to the network.

Before getting ousted from the White House earlier this year, Gorka was a ubiquitous presence across cable news, appearing ostensibly to discuss foreign policy, but often engaging in enthusiastic media criticism, sparring with hosts on CNN and MSNBC, and mocking both networks’ ratings.

Neither Fox News nor Gorka returned Business Insider’s request for comment.
