Fox News Channel will decline to renew contracts for a number of its on-air contributors — all conservatives.

A network spokesman said that they include political commentator George Will, Republican strategist Ed Rollins and actress Stacey Dash.
The 75-year-old Pulitzer Prize-winning Will is the most controversial of the three. He served as a conservative columnist for Newsweek for decades before moving to ABC News. Fox picked him up in 2013, where he served as a panelist for such programs as “Fox News Sunday” and “Special Report.”
He announced last year that he was resigning from the Republican Party in response to Donald Trump’s nomination, a move that left no tears from the new president.

Will has also locked horns with popular Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, referring to his bestseller “Killing Reagan” as “nonsensical,” and O’Reilly firing back that Will was “a hack.”
But apparently, the move has little to do with the president.
Both Dash, 50, and Rollins, 73, are declared Trump supporters, with the latter currently co-chairs the pro–Trump Great America PAC.
Two other contributors who didn’t make the cut are veteran journalist Marvin Kalb, 86, and syndicated columnist and radio commentator Cal Thomas, 74.
Fox News also announced that it was adding former U.K. Independence Party leader Nigel Farage to its stable of contributors. Farage, who led the campaign to separate the U.K. from there European Union, is also a huge Trump supporter.
Apparently, Juan Williams and Geraldo Rivera are both remaining in the Fox News family — at least for now.
