Former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown has found a new home in politics: Fox News announced on Wednesday that it's signing him on as a network contributor.

“Sen. 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," Bill Shine, executive vice president of programming, said in a statement.

Brown recently passed up the opportunity to run in the special election to replace Sen. John Kerry after losing his own bid for re-election to Democrat Elizabeth Warren in November.

Brown positioned himself as an independent-minded Republican in that race in an attempt to win over the state's many independent and Democratic-leaning voters.

“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 in a statement regarding his new position at Fox.

Since leaving office in early January, Brown has drawn attention from political observers for his frank and pedantic Twitter usage after taking over the Twitter account once controlled by his staff. "Just spent the morning cleaning the garage. Ugh," he wrote Jan. 11.

Brown will make his Fox debut on Wednesday night on "Hannity."
