Not long after new Ohio Governor Mike DeWine’s inaugural, former Gov. John Kasich is announcing a new gig.
Kasich has signed with CNN to be a political commentator for various shows – just hours after announcing, on the same day as DeWine’s inauguration ceremony, that he had signed with an LA-based talent agency.
He’s been vague about his plans after leaving the governor’s office. But he’s a known quantity for the network since he has been interviewed by on air many times about President Trump’s policies.
Kasich has been a prominent critic of Trump since July 2015 when both were running for the Republican presidential nomination. Before becoming governor, Kasich was the host of a FOX News weekend show called “Heartland.” Kasich’s first appearance as an official commentator will be on “Cuomo Prime Time” tonight
