From the Hollywood Reporter:
After retiring from the U.S. Senate last week, Jeff Flake is still looking for his “next thing.” It might just be at CBS News, which has engaged in talks with the Arizona Republican about a role at the network, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Flake, who emerged as one of President Trump’s biggest critics and might challenge him for the party nomination in 2020, was spotted at the network’s Manhattan headquarters last Friday. Flake could serve in the standard role for ex-politicians, as an on-air contributor — or as something more, according to knowledgable sources.
Even the president played into the rumor mill last Wednesday, suggesting during a cabinet meeting in the White House that Flake will “probably go to work for CNN. That’s my prediction.”
