Scott Brown Signs On With Fox News
Former Senator Scott Brown will be spending some time on television:
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.
An interesting move for Brown since it seems to indicate he may not be thinking about running for office again soon after all. Also an interesting move for Fox, given that Brown doesn’t entirely fit in with the ideological bent of that network.
