Rick Sanchez Returns… On Fox News Latino

Former CNN anchor Rick Sanchez–who was let go from the network in October 2010 following comments he made on a radio program–is getting back into the cable news fold.

TVNewser hears that Sanchez will make his debut as a columnist on Fox News Latino Wednesday morning. Sanchez has a short term gig with the site, in which he is expected to provide insights into the Latino community. Fox News Latino coincidentally also launched in October 2010, the same month Sanchez was fired from CNN.

Sanchez hasn’t left the media business. He has remained active on social media, and has had stints on a handful of radio stations in Florida and California. Last year he shopped around a talk show, which would tape in both English and Spanish.

After the jump, in a Media Beat interview, Sanchez talks with us about his rise from local news to network news, first at MSNBC, then CNN.
