Before his unsuccessful 2012 bid for the Republican presidential nomination petered out amid allegations of sexual harassment and infidelity, Cain made a name for himself as a successful businessman. He was president and CEO of Godfather’s Pizza from 1986 to 1996 and CEO of the National Restaurant Association from 1996 to 1999. Since then he has worked as a conservative radio host, columnist and author.

“I'm excited about joining the FOX family as a contributor because it is an opportunity to be one more voice for intelligent thinking in America," Cain said, according to FNC.
