Fox News on Wednesday added the former Republican Senator Scott Brown to its contributor ranks, two weeks after Mr. Brown decided against another run for a Senate seat in Massachusetts.
Brown will make his debut as a paid pundit on Wednesday night’s edition
of “Hannity,” the channel’s 9 p.m. program. “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,” Mr. Brown said in a statement.
Politico reported last week
that Mr. Brown was in talks with the network. His hiring is the latest
