Republican John Kasich, who is thinking about running for president in 2020, is likely to announce as soon as this week that he will join a major cable news network, CNBC has learned.
Kasich has signaled to close advisors and some donors that he is looking to sign with either CNN or MSNBC as he finishes his two-term tenure as Ohio’s governor, according to three people with knowledge of the conversations, including two who have been close to the governor since his 2016 presidential run.
These people would not say the role Kasich will play at a network, only to say that he’s ruled out joining Fox News Channel. Kasich hosted his own show on Fox News for several years in the 2000s.
These people added that Kasich could announce his plans as early as Tuesday, a person close to Kasich said.

So he’s going to be a commentator while he is running for president?

Sounds like it. Hard to say how that would work. Will he provide coverage own his own campaign? CNN host John Kasich sits down for a one on one with presidential candidate John Kasich?
