In a deal that won’t surprise anyone, Willie Robertson of A&E’s Duck Dynasty will be joining the ‘fair and balanced’ cable news network next week as a contributor and podcast host. The self-proclaimed Duck Commander will be launching a 45-minute podcast on Monday, April 4 on Fox News Radio.

According to Fox, Willie’s show will focus on “faith and family” and will have fellow evangelical and Baltimore Raven’s tight end, Benjamin Watson, as the podcast’s first guest.

Known for his radical Christian values, Robertson is no stranger to Fox News. He has appeared multiple times on the channel as a guest, and even rang in the new year with the Fox gang for their New Year’s Eve Countdown Special.

Although this seems like a match made in conservative heaven, there might be some trouble up ahead. Willie has been extremely vocal about his support of GOP front-runner, Donald Trump, claiming that he is a “friend of the Second Amendment.” Fox is still not playing nice with Trump over his remarks and disrespect to anchor, Megyn Kelley.

Still, Robertson is no stranger to controversy. In 2013, he defended his father, Phil’s previous comments, stating, “I believe what the Bible says.”
