The Fox News Channel confirmed Wednesday that it would be enlisting former Massachusetts Republican Sen. Scott Brown as an on-air contributor.
“Sen. 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, Executive Vice President of Programming for Fox News, said.
Brown, known for defeating Democratic Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley to fill the seat held by long-time Sen. Ted Kennedy in 2010, declined to make another run at the Senate seat vacated by recently confirmed Secretary of State John Kerry earlier this month.
“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 in the release.
Brown served in the Army National Guard for 33 years, achieving the rank of Colonel, and was a JAG in the Maryland Army National Guard. Last November, Brown lost his Senate seat to former Harvard professor Elizabeth Warren by a 54-to-46 margin.
Brown will be appearing on Fox News’ “Hannity” Wednesday evening.
