Allen West -- retired Lieutenant Colonel, former congressman and now a Fox News contributor:
Former Florida Rep. Allen West will join Fox News as a contributor, the network said on Thursday.
"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," Bill Shine, the network's executive vice president of programming, said in a statement.
West is the latest big-name conservative to work with the cable network. Earlier this year, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin parted ways with Fox News after three years. Reports at the time suggested that it was Palin's decision not to renew her contract as a part-time contributor.
