Fox News Channel has added Herman Cain as a contributor. The former National Restaurant Association CEO, who ran for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012, will join other recent additions to the cable news network like former senator Scott Brown and former congressman Dennis Kucinich. “Cain’s impressive resume 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,” said FNC’s EVP Programming Bill Shine in a statement today. Since dropping out in his bid for the Republican nomination last year, Cain has made frequent appearances on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show With Jon Stewart as a mock president detailing his decision-making process.
Embattled Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain will make his first appearance on CBS’ Late Show With David Letterman next Friday. Cain, a syndicated columnist, former radio talk show host and president and CEO of the Godfather’s Pizza chain, emerged as the unlikely frontrunner in the Republican presidential race. But over the past week, he has been hit with accusations of past sexual harassment. Cain will be able to commiserate with Letterman who 2 years ago admitted to having sexual relationships with female employes as a fallout of the foiled extortion attempt against him. Like all late-night comedians, Letterman has been closely following Cain’s campaign and recently parodied the candidate’s ad featuring his chief of staff, Mark Block, smoking a cigarette.
