The nine-time U.S. and five-time world champion skater will cover a variety of sports for FOX, which is launching its cable sports channel, FOX Sports 1, this month.
The two-time Olympic medalist told AP, "When they asked, they were really encouraging to me to try it out. They said, 'We are going to be innovative and fun and open to different angles,' which really attracted me. Reporting and storytelling is what they want, so for me it will interesting to kind of let the public know about the stories of athletes, or their perspectives on the Olympics."
Kwan currently works for the State Department as a Senior Adviser for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs.
Figure skating champ Michelle Kwan has been hired by FOX Sports to cover the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia in 2014.
