(Chicago Tribune) Fox News announced Friday that it has hired Herman Cain, the spirited former presidential candidate and ex-pizza CEO, as a contributor for Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network.

Cain joins former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown as the latest addition to the network, which has shuffled its supporting cast in the wake of last year’s presidential election.

Bill Shine, Fox News’ executive vice president of programming, said in a statement that Cain “brings an important voice to the nation’s debates,” framing him as a “political expert with business savvy.”
