Allen West gets job as Fox News contributor

Fox News said today it has hired fomer Florida Rep. Allen West as a contributor, offering political commentary across various daytime and primetime programs.

“Representative West’s congressional and military experience along with his fearless approach to voicing key issues will provide a valuable point of view to the FOX News lineup," said Bill Shine, executive vice president of programming.

West, who was defeated by Democrat Patrick Murphy in November, earlier this year became director of Next Generation TV Programming with PJ Media.
