Fox News and Sarah Palin have gone their separate ways. The former Alaska governor's contract with the network ended as of June 1 and will not be renewed, a Fox spokesperson tells Politico. The rep says the split was amicable, and Palin is still expected to show up on Fox and Fox Business as a guest. Politico says the move was made because execs no longer see Palin as quite so "relevant." (But she's not exactly going anywhere: As Politico notes, she has her own TV show, gives frequent speeches, will likely appear on other networks and cable channels, and has a "new publishing project" in the works.) CNNMoney notes that Palin and Fox previously split in 2013, but she returned to the network the same year. (More Sarah Palin stories.)
