Former Sen. Brown Talking To FOX About Contributor Job

This article is more than 8 years old.

Former U.S. Sen. Scott Brown is in talks with Fox News about a possible job as a contributor.

A spokeswoman for the news network confirmed the discussions, first reported Wednesday by Politico. They come a week after Brown, a Republican, announced he wouldn't be running a third time for the Senate. A message was left for a Brown spokesman.

Brown, who lost to Democrat Elizabeth Warren last year, is quickly building a post-Senate life.

He has already joined the board of directors of Kadant Inc., a Westford Mass.-based paper company. Kadant's president, Jonathan Painter, said it welcomes the chance to draw on Brown's "wealth of experience." Brown said he looked forward to "contributing to the future direction" of Kadant.

Brown announced last week he won't run in the special election to fill John Kerry's former U.S. Senate seat.
