Fox News Hires Former Senator Scott Brown As Contributor

Just more than three months after he lost his Massachusetts Senate seat, Scott Brown will be joining Fox News Channel as a contributor, the cable network said today. “Senator Brown’s dedication to out-of-the box thinking on key issues makes him an important voice in the country and we are looking forward to his contributions across all Fox News platforms,” said Bill Shine, Fox News’ EVP Programming today in a statement. The Republican will make his debut tonight on Sean Hannity’s show. Brown, who served less than one full term in the Senate after winning Ted Kennedy’s former seat in 2010, had widely been tipped to run for John Kerry’s seat when the Democrat replaced Hilary Clinton as Secretary Of State. However, Brown said he would not seek the office again. His addition comes as the network has been moving people in and out of late, with Sarah Palin and Dick Morris let go recently. On the other hand, the top-rated news network re-upped former Bush advisor Karl Rove’s contract and added liberal former congressman Dennis Kucinich as a contributor in January.
