After retiring from the U.S. Senate last week, Jeff Flake is still looking for his "next thing." It might just be at CBS News, which has engaged in talks with the Arizona Republican about a role at the network, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Flake, who emerged as one of President Trump's biggest critics and might challenge him for the party nomination in 2020, was spotted at the network's Manhattan headquarters last Friday.
Flake could serve in the standard role for ex-politicians, as an on-air contributor, or as something more, according to knowledgable sources.

It seems like the deal was done months ago.
Judas got 30 pieces of silver.
I wonder what Flake got.
He could have gone to FOX, to back up Shep, Juan, and Marie Harf.
At least it wasn’t a cable network, where we would have to see his mug 7 days a week.
The Communist News Network will tout him as “right-wing” and “conservative.”
All thirteen watching will drool...
From last June:
...On Monday, he met with MSNBC president Phil Griffin; and on Tuesday, he met with rival network CNNs chief Jeff Zucker...
Further confirming my suspicions that hes a Democrat plant.
Now he can drop the “l” in his last name!
Flake, who emerged as one of President Trump’s biggest critics and might challenge him for the party nomination in 2020,
But anyhow, does anyone think any of the news” stations need even more people who say Trump sucks?
He’ll be right at home there.
Flake can misrepresent the “conservative” viewpoint, just like George Will, Jennifer Rubin, David Gergen, David Brooks...
He’d be perfect for it.
Does that mean he ain’t running in 2020 on the Republican ticket for President?
“Flake Fake News Hour” coming soon.
Great news for me to hear that the Flake will be on CBS!
I don’t even know on what channel CBS is broadcast.
I don’t care. We watch other news outlets and CNN, NBC, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, etc. are never on our screens.
Could’t care less. I never watch CBS news anyway.
Can't they find anybody with some credibility to do the same job?
Bwah hah hah, now appropriate that the birthplace of Fake News (Dan Rather and CBS) is considering hiring McQueegs lying prison b*tch.
Saint Jeffy is NOT welcome back here in Arizona.
Way to go, SeeBS, hire a failed one-term senator who left office with a NINE PERCENT approval rating LMAO!!!!
