They've had a symbiotic relationship for some time now anyway, but now it's official: Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is reportedly becoming a Fox News contributor.

"The network confirmed that Ms. Palin will appear on the network’s programming on a regular basis as part of a multi-year deal," the New York Times' Jim Rutenberg is reporting. According to Rutenberg, Palin won't have her own regular show, but "she will host an occasional series that will run on the network from time to time."

Palin isn't the only potential 2012 hopeful to be employed by Fox; former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has a show on the network as well.

Update: According to the Los Angeles Times, Palin will be making her first appearance as a Fox contributor on Tuesday night's "O'Reilly Factor."

Also, Fox says that Palin will host "periodic episodes" of a show called -- I am not making this up -- "Real American Stories."
