Fox News Hires Former US Rep. Allen West

n May 16, Fox News announced it had hired former Florida Representative Allen West as a contributor to offer political commentary during the network's daytime and prime time shows.

In a statement, Executive Vice President of Programming Bill Shine said, "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."

West is currently the Director of Next Generation TV Programming with PJ Media; until the 2012 elections, he was Florida's congressman from the 22nd District, a seat he won in 2010. West lost his seat last year, largely due to redistricting. Prior to that, West was a 22-year veteran of the United States Army, retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel in 2004.

Rep. West was recently mentioned as an ideal candidate to replace Florida Lt. Governor Jennifer Carroll, who resigned in March.

Wild Thing's comment..............

I sooooo wish he was still in office, but this news is OK until he decides to run again.

I am looking forward to this. I watch Fox haphazardly but now I have a better reason to. I hope they don't bridle Col West, but he is a master at articulation and he will get his message through. West, Levin and Sarah Palin are the conservatives I like to listen to.
