Herman Cain Joins Fox News As Contributor

Herman Cain is Fox News' newest contributor, the network announced on Friday.

Cain will contribute analysis and commentary on Fox News, as well as Fox Business Network. Bill Shine, Fox News' executive vice-president of programming, called Cain "a valuable addition" in a statement released on Friday. "As a political expert with business savvy, he brings an important voice to the nation's debates," Shine said.

Cain added, "I'm excited about joining the FOX family as a contributor because it is an opportunity to be one more voice for intelligent thinking in America."

This is not Cain's first foray into media. In addition to making previous appearances on Fox News and hosting a radio show, Cain attempted to start his own TV network called Cain TV.

Fox News' announcement comes as the network shuffles its line-up of contributors. Fox News recently parted ways with Sarah Palin, and signed Scott Brown on Wednesday.
