Fox News's latest hire: Herman Cain.

"Cain’s impressive résumé makes him a valuable addition to the Fox News and Fox Business lineup," the network said in a statement announcing the hire. "As a political expert with business savvy, he brings an important voice to the nation’s debates."


Cain joins former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown on the cable channel's payroll. The two new hires come after Fox News parted ways with a pair of familiar faces: Sarah Palin and Dick Morris.
