Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson lands Fox News gig and podcast

Willie Robertson is trading duck calls for dog whistles, as Deadline reports that the Duck Dynasty scion has just landed a podcast and contributor gig at Fox News. Robertson’s new show, The Willie Robertson Podcast, premieres Monday and will “focus on matters Robertson is already well known for, framed as ‘faith and family’.” Additionally, the Duck Commander CEO will serve as a Fox News contributor, though it’s currently not known whether he’ll be on the presidential campaign beat, or the “disparage the current president” beat.

Thanks to this April Fools’ nonsense, there are a lot of fake stories floating out there today, but this one’s kind of a no-brainer: Robertson’s previous TV outings have seen him espousing the conservative values on which he was raised. He did recently endorse GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, though that doesn’t appear to have soured Fox News on his hosting and corresponding abilities. Besides, surely he can sell the network on Trump being a “friend of the Second Amendment.”
