Fox Business co-host loses paid gig after getting tapped for Trump transition team

Fox Business contributor Anthony Scaramucci has been added to President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team as an economic adviser and will no longer be paid for his appearances on the network.

Scaramucci joined Fox Business as a contributor in August 2014 and co-hosted “Wall Street Week.” He was an avid supporter of Donald Trump during the campaign and that loyalty is now paying dividends, according to The Hill.

Not that his support didn’t come with a few pitfalls, as he explained in an interview with The New Yorker.

“I took a lot of flak from the media and from some of my fellow members from the Wall Street community, a lot of snide commentary,” Scaramucci said, with a shrug. “It makes me laugh. It’s fine. You have to be a big boy about this stuff.”

He responded to the news Friday on social media, calling his appointment “a true honor.”

Joining the hedge fund partner on Trump’s transition team will be venture capitalist Peter Thiel, who endorse Trump at the Republican National Convention in July.

Fox Business said Scaramucci will still appear on the network as an unpaid guest, so his fans will not be left out in the cold.
