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, who lost his GOP re-election bid last year, will provide political commentary on daytime and prime-time programs, Shine said.
