Sarah Palin is out as a Fox News Channel contributor.

The network said on Friday that it is parting ways with the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate.

Bill Shine, executive vice president at Fox News, said the network has enjoyed its association with Palin and wishes her the best. There was no immediate comment from the former Alaska governor.

A person familiar with discussions between Fox and Palin described the parting as amicable, saying that Fox and Palin had discussed renewing her contract but she decided to do other things. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to speak on the record.

Palin debuted as a Fox contributor in January 2010.
