NEW YORK--(Business Wire)--
FOX News has hired former Republican Senator Scott Brown as a contributor,
announced Bill Shine, Executive Vice President of Programming for the network.
Brown will offer political commentary across various daytime and primetime
programs, making his debut on Hannity (9PM/ET)on Wednesday evening. 

In making the announcement, Shine said, "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." 

Most recently, Brown represented Massachusetts in the U.S. Senate from 2010 to
2012, a seat he notably took over from the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy in a
special election. While a member of the Senate, he was a known problem solver
working with both sides in an independent manner. Prior to his time there, he
led an active political career in Massachusetts where he was a member of the
State Senate from 2004 to 2010, the State House of Representatives from 1998 to
2004 and the Massachusetts General Court. 

Brown added, "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." 

He has also served in the Army National Guard for 33 years, currently holding
the rank of Colonel, JAG in the Maryland Army National Guard. Brown earned his
J.D. from Boston College Law School and undergraduate degree from Tufts
University.
