Former Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) is joining Fox News Channel as a regular contributor, the network announced Wednesday.
Kucinich, the liberal firebrand and former two-time presidential candidate, will make his first appearance on the channel on Thursday night during "The O'Reilly Factor," according to The Associated Press.
"Through 16 years in Congress and two presidential campaigns, Fox News has always provided me with an opportunity to share my perspective with its enormous viewership," Kucinich said in a statement. "I look forward to a continuation of our relationship, this time as a Fox News contributor."
Fox News CEO Roger Ailes praised Kucinich in a statement, saying he's always been impressed with the former congressman's "fearlessness and thoughtfulness about important issues. His willingness to take a stand from his point of view makes him a valuable voice in our country’s debate."
