Brown was elected to take deceased Sen. Edward Kennedy's seat in a 2010 special election. He sold himself to a left-leaning Massachussetts electorate by promising to be an independent thinker.

Brown was ousted by Elizabeth Warren in the most expensive Senate race of 2012. He recently opted not to seek the seat left behind by new Secretary of State John Kerry, but his future political ambitions are a source of frequent speculation in his state.

“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.

“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,” Fox News' executive vice president of programming Bill Shine said.

Prior to his senatorial win, Brown held a number of positions in Massachusetts state politics, including a six-year stint in the State Senate.

Brown's other accomplishments include being named Cosmopolitan magazine's "America's Sexiest Man" contest in 1982, an honor which earned him a centerfold in the magazine.

In recent months, Fox News has been shuffling its contributors' roster, parting ways with former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and former Clinton adviser Dick Morris. It has also picked up former "Man Show" host Adam Carolla and former Democratic congressman and presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich.

The network also re-upped former Bush adviser Karl Rove through the 2016 presidential election.
