Kucinich Signed as Fox News Contributor

Will premiere on The O'Reilly Factor Thursday

Dennis Kucinich, the former Democratic congressman from Ohio, is the Fox News Channel's newest contributor.

Mr. Kucinich will make his first appearance as a contributor on the channel's highest-rated program, "The O'Reilly Factor," on Thursday night, the channel said in a news release.

Mr. Kucinich, a two-time presidential candidate known for his staunch antiwar views, lost his bid for re-election to the House of Representatives last year. The loss (to his primary opponent, Representative Marcy Kaptur) was not a surprise, because his Congressional district was largely eliminated when Ohio lawmakers redrew the state's electoral map in 2011.
