Fox News Hires Scott Brown As Contributor

Fox News Channel has hired former Massachusetts U.S. Sen. Scott Brown as a contributor, and the Republican made 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.
