Former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson is in talks to join MSNBC, according to a report Saturday evening.

Carlson, who filed a sexual harassment and retaliation lawsuit last year against former Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes, is nearing the completion of a deal, according to a Business Insider report, citing an unnamed source.

An MSNBC spokesperson said no deal has been made, but had no comment for Business Insider on whether the talks with Carlson are happening.

Carlon reportedly settled with Fox News in September, on behalf of Ailes, for $20 million. Ailes resigned from the company in July of 2016 amid the scandal.

If Carlson joins MSNBC she would follow in the footsteps of another former Fox News fixture, Greta Van Susteren, who now has her own show on the network. Megyn Kelly also recently left Fox News in order to join NBC News earlier this year.
