Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is making a return to the political limelight, but this time she’ll be contributing as a commentator rather than as the subject of the news.

The former mayor announced this afternoon via Twitter that she will join ABC News as a political contributor starting this week. Her first assignment is only three days away: Rawlings-Blake will be part of the network’s team covering the inauguration ceremony for President-elect Donald Trump this Friday.

With this new job, the former mayor has four publicly known gigs to keep her busy now that she’s out of office. She’s also the secretary for the Democratic National Committeehas her own consulting firm established almost exactly one month ago and is listed as a paid speaker on talent booking firm WME | IMG Speakers’ roster.

This isn’t her first time working with the cable news channel. They enlisted her help on election night in November by making her part of their lineup of pundits, journalists, former officeholders and others who provided analysis for the evening. Evidently, the network’s producers and executives felt she did a good enough job to give her a permanent paid position.

According to ABC, the “Make America Great Again”-themed inauguration ceremony kicks off in Washington D.C. at 11:30 a.m. this Friday. We’ll see you on TV, SRB.
