Palin is also exec editor overseeing all content posted to the channel.
“I want to talk directly to you on our channel, on my terms — and no need to please the powers that be,” Palin, who is also a Fox News contributor, said in a video announcing the channel. “Together, we’ll go beyond the sound bites and cut through the media’s politically correct filter.”
Palin’s online network is modeled on TheBlaze, the online-video network and website that ex-Fox News host Glen Beck launched into cyberspace in 2011
Sarah Palin Channel subscribers will be able to post their own videos to the website, submit questions to her, and participate in online video chats with her and other subscribers.
