Fox News has signed Herman Cain, the former Republican presidential candidate, as a contributor.

"Cain’s impressive résumé makes him a valuable addition to the Fox News and Fox Business lineup. As a political expert with business savvy, he brings an important voice to the nation’s debates," Bill Shine, the executive vice president of programming, said in a statement.

Cain, former president and CEO of Godfather's Pizza, will provide analysis and commentary across Fox News's daytime and primetime programming, as well as on the Fox Business Network, Shine said.

Cain's hire comes just days after Fox News announced that it had signed former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown as a contributor, and weeks after the departure of former contributors Sarah Palin and Dick Morris.
