Fox News Channel has signed former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile as a contributor, the network announced Monday.

Ms. Brazile, described as a “veteran Democratic strategist,” will offer political analysis for both Fox News and Fox Business Network for daytime and prime-time programming — beginning with an appearance on “The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino” at 2 p.m. ET on Monday.

“I’m delighted to be joining Fox News. I know I’m going to get criticized from my friends in the progressive movement for being on Fox News. My response is that, if we’ve learned anything from the 2016 election, it is that we can’t have a country where we don’t talk to those who disagree with our political views,” Ms. Brazile said in a statement.

“There’s an audience on FOX News that doesn’t hear enough from Democrats. We have to engage that audience and show Americans of every stripe what we stand for rather than retreat into our ‘safe spaces’ where we simply agree with each other. For there is no safety in self-limiting numbers. You can be darn sure that I’m still going to be me on FOX News. I’m going to do what I always do: and dish it out straight, exactly as I see it, with just as much New Orleans hot sauce as folks expect,” she said.

Ms. Brazile is the author of the 2017 book “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House.” She also
served as interim national chair of the Democratic National Committee (during the 2016 presidential election) and was chair of the DNC’s Voting Rights Institute, as well as vice chair of Civic Engagement and Voter Participation at the organization.
