Scott Brown Joins Fox News as Contributor
It didn't take Scott Brown very long to line up his next gig. The former Massachusetts senator, who lost his seat to Democrat Elizabeth Warren in the 2012 election, has signed with Fox News Channel to join its roster of regular contributors.
"Sen. Brown's dedication to out-of-the box thinking on key issues makes him an important voice in the country," said network executive vp programming Bill Shine, "and we are looking forward to his contributions across all Fox News platforms."
Wednesday's announcement also coincides with his first appearance under his new contract. Brown is scheduled to make his FNC contributor debut during the 9 p.m. EST broadcast of Hannity.
"I am looking forward to commenting on the issues of the day and challenging our elected officials to put our country's needs first instead of their own partisan interests," said Brown.
Brown joined the Senate in 2010 during a special election held in the wake of Edward M. Kennedy's death. Before his time in Congress, he was an elected member to the Massachusetts State Senate and State House of Representatives.
He joins FNC during a time of contributor turnover at the top-rated cable news network. FNC recently re-signed contributor Karl Rove but ended relationships with Sarah Palin and Dick Morris.
