Sarah Palin on Fox New Sunday: This may not happen again.

The former vice presidential candidate parts ways with the conservative media outlet

Sarah Palin — the former governor of Alaska and 2008 vice presidential candidate — is leaving her perch at Fox News after a three-year run, reports Real Clear Politics. According to a source close to Palin, the one-time GOP star was offered a new contract, but turned it down. "She remains focused on broadening her message of common-sense conservatism across the country and will be expanding her voice in the national discussion," the source told RCP.

The news has already sparked much speculation (and joking) on where Palin will go from here:

Sarah Palin actually lasted longer as a Fox News talking head than she did as Governor of Alaska.
