Two new gigs! Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson is joining Fox News as a contributor and podcast host, the network announced on Thursday, April 1.

The Duck Commander CEO, 43, will be launching a weekly 45-minute podcast via Fox News Radio that will focus on “faith and family,” according to a Fox News statement to Us. The program will feature occasional celebrity interviews and is set to premiere on Monday, April 4. For Robertson’s debut, the station will release three episodes, including an interview with Baltimore Ravens tight end Benjamin Watson.

The conservative Christian reality star, who has been publicly supporting Donald Trump during the presidential campaign, has made numerous guest appearances on the channel, even making a cameo on Fox’s New Year’s Eve countdown special.
