FOX News Channel (FNC) has signed former two-time presidential candidate and former U.S. Representative Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) as a contributor in a multi-year deal, announced Bill Shine, Executive Vice President of Programming for the network. Kucinich will provide analysis and commentary across FNC's daytime and primetime programming, as well as on FOX Business Network (FBN). He will make his debut in the new role on The O'Reilly Factor (8:00 PM/ET) this Thursday, January 17th.

"I've always been impressed with Rep. Kucinich'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."

Adding to the announcement, Roger Ailes, Chairman and CEO, FOX News, said, "I've always been impressed with Rep. Kucinich'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."

Kucinich commented, "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. I look forward to a continuation of our relationship this time as a FOX News contributor."

Most recently, Kucinich served as a Democratic member of the U.S. House of Representatives for Ohio, representing Ohio's 10th congressional district, for sixteen years from 1997 to January 2013. Furthermore, he served as Subcommittee Chairman on the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, as well as being a ranking member, and was also on the Education and the Workforce Committee. Additionally, Kucinich was a candidate for the Democratic nomination for the President of the United States in both 2004 and 2008. Prior to serving in Congress, he was an Ohio State Senator for two years. He also ran his own marketing and communications firm, K Communications, from 1988 to 1994 while he took time off from serving in office.

Kucinich began his long career in government at the young age of 23 when he was elected to the Cleveland City Council. At the age of 31, he was elected mayor of Cleveland and was the youngest mayor, at the time, of a major city in the United States. He is also the author of The Courage to Survive, which was published in 2007.
