Israel’s outgoing ambassador to the US is set to take a post with CNN.

Michael Oren, who served as Israeli envoy from 2009 to this past September, will work as a contributor and on-air analyst for the news channel, which has featured Oren in the past.

Just last week, the past ambassador penned an obituary for Ariel Sharon, which ran on CNN’s website.

Oren is American born and splits his time between the Jewish state and the US. He is a visiting lecturer at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya and a fellow at think tank the Atlantic Council.
