In a Revolving Door entry that isn’t, Arizona Congressman J.D. Hayworth is not going to leaving Congress to go work at Fox News. Well, at least, maybe not. Right now, that is, no. But that may be primarily because Fox News hasn’t offered him a job.
The rumors, according to the Phoenix Business Journal, have been swirling recently that the former sportscaster and occasional cable news talking head might be angling for a full-time talking head job at Fox.
A Fox News spokesperson denied the rumors to the biz journal and to cousin site TVNewser, and an “industry insider,” who sounds to us a lot like the previously mentioned Fox News spokesperson, added that Hayworth is a “publicity hound who likely put the rumor out there himself to test the waters, but there’s no interest on Fox’s end.”
Hayworth’s press secretary “discounted” the rumors and said that Hayworth “intends” to run for Congress in 2006. Doesn’t really sound Sherman-esque, though, does it?
