Tucker Carlson and Dana Perino have joined Fox News as contributors, the Huffington Post has learned.

Carlson hosted the 6PM hour on MSNBC until March 2008, when his show, "Tucker," was canceled. Since then, he served as a senior campaign correspondent for MSNBC and has written for The Daily Beast.

Perino served as White House Press Secretary from September 2007 through the end of George W. Bush's second term. Last month, it was announced she'd be joining Mark Penn's public relations firm, Burson-Marsteller, as "chief issues counselor."
