Sarah Palin , the former Vice-presidential candidate and Alaskan governor, will be ending her role as a contributor for Fox News.

A Palin source at the network told Real Clear Politics she was offered a new contract but will not be staying on. Palin had a three-year contract.

“She remains focused on broadening her message of common-sense conservatism across the country and will be expanding her voice in the national discussion,” the source told RCP.

FOX Executive Vice President Bill Shine confirmed to the New York Times, “we have thoroughly enjoyed our association with Governor Palin. We wish her the best in her future endeavors.”

Over the past few years, Palin was a frequent commentator on the news channel and in 2010, Fox News built a studio in her Alaska home for her appearances.

However, more recently, Palin complained on Facebook that during August's Republican convention the network had “canceled all [her] scheduled interviews” according to Real Clear Politics.
