Former Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said Tuesday she is joining ABC News as a political contributor.
Rawlings-Blake will begin on-air work on Friday, offering analysis of the inauguration of President-elect Donald J. Trump.
"Proud to be part of #history!" the former mayor wrote on Twitter. She said she was "humbled" by the new job.
Rawlings-Blake served as an unpaid analyst during ABC News' election night coverage in September.
Since leaving office, she has launched a consulting firm, SRB & Associates. She also is listed as a featured speaker with a national organization, WME-IMG Speakers.
