Excerpted from Politico: It’s official: Fox News has hired former Republican Sen. Scott Brown as a contributor.
Brown, who will be a contributor across the network’s programming, debuts tonight on Sean Hannity’s program. As previously reported by POLITICO, the former Senator had been in talks with the network since announcing that he would not run for the Massachusetts seat vacated by John Kerry.
“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,” Bill Shine, the network’s executive vice president of programming, said in a statement.
“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,” Brown said.
AP: Fox News Channel is hiring former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown as a contributor, and the Republican is making his debut in prime time on Wednesday.
The network says Brown will offer commentary across several programs, starting with Sean Hannity on Wednesday. Brown lost his seat to Elizabeth Warren in November and declined to run in a special election to fill the Senate seat vacated by now-Secretary of State John Kerry.
Brown says he’s looking forward to challenging elected officials to put the country’s needs ahead of their partisan interests.
Fox has been remaking its contributor lineup in recent months, cutting ties to Sarah Palin and Dick Morris while hiring Brown and Dennis Kucinich.
