That didn't take long.

On his first day out of office, United Talent Agency announced it has signed departed Ohio Gov. John Kasich to represent him on the national stage — potentially as a speaker and television commentator.

Kasich, a two-term Republican, has said it is likely he will return to the news media in some role while also writing his fifth book.

In a news release, United Talent Agency, of Beverly Hills, Calif., called Kasich "one of the nation’s most thoughtful and inspiring conservative political voices ... the company will help Kasich navigate the next phase of his career in civic engagement, by continuing to inspire audiences to lead purpose-driven lives of service."

Kasich unsuccessfully ran for the Republican nomination for president in 2016 — and talks of keeping his options open for 2020 — and has been in demand to appear on cable TV news programs and broadcast political shows due to his willingness as a Republican to criticize Donald Trump.

“I’m excited to work with UTA to keep my voice active across the world and share my experiences and observations to help improve the lives of others,” Kasich said in a statement.

Kasich, who served nine terms in the U.S. House, hosted "Heartland with John Kasich" on Fox News for seven years prior to running for governor in 2010.

United Talent said it represents a host of media figures, including several CNN anchors and commentators such as Anderson Cooper, Jim Acosta, Jake Tapper Don Lemon and  NBC's Chuck Todd while its speakers bureau includes the like of Gen. Wesley Clark and Pitbull.

Republican Mike DeWine, a former attorney general and U.S. senator, succeeded Kasich as governor early Monday.

Kasich left office with an op-ed in USA Today, writing on Monday that the Republican Party is mired in the 1950s and is ignoring today's divisive America at its peril. The governor said the GOP is in danger in danger of getting swept up like horse dung after a parade.
