LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Will, who also writes a popular newspaper column and won a Pulitzer Prize for commentary in 1977, will contribute to several shows on Fox News, including "Special Report with Bret Baier" and "Sunday Morning With Chris Wallace."

While he is generally considered a conservative, Will says he has become more libertarian over time.

Serving as an editor for National Review from 1972 to 1978, Will joined the Washington Post Writers Group in 1974, where he wrote a syndicated biweekly column. Syndicated to 450 newspapers, his column continues today. In 1976 he became a contributing editor for Newsweek, writing a biweekly backpage column until 2011.

At first, Will was widely praised by the left for condemning the corruption of the Nixon presidency. He won a Pulitzer Prize for Commentary for "distinguished commentary on a variety of topics" in 1977. Combining factual reporting with conservative commentary, Will's columns are known for their erudite vocabulary, allusions to political philosophers and frequent references to baseball.

He has also written two bestselling books on the game of baseball, three books on political philosophy, and has published eleven compilations of his columns for the Washington Post and Newsweek and of various book reviews and lectures.

Will was also a news analyst for ABC since the early 1980s and was a founding member on the panel of ABC's This Week with David Brinkley in 1981, now titled This Week with George Stephanopoulos. Will was also a regular panelist on television's Agronsky & Company from 1977 through 1984 and on NBC's Meet the Press in the mid-to-late 1970s.

While at ABC, he was most prominent on "This Week" at ABC.
