WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican Sarah Palin is coming to your television -- as long as it's tuned to the Fox News Channel.

The conservative firebrand has signed a multi-year deal to serve as a Fox News contributor, the cable channel's executive vice president for programing, Bill Shine, said in a statement.

Palin was John McCain's vice presidential running mate in the 2008 campaign, and chronicled her story in a best-selling book, "Going Rogue."

The former Alaska governor generates enthusiasm among conservative loyalists while liberals and environmentalists denounce her.

She has not ruled out running for president in 2012, saying she is concentrating on helping Republicans win victories in 2010 congressional elections.

"Governor Palin has captivated everyone on both sides of the political spectrum and we are excited to add her dynamic voice to the Fox News lineup," Shine said.
