Scott Brown out at FOX News as he explores bid for U.S. Senate

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com/AP) - Former Sen. Scott Brown's agreement with FOX News was terminated Friday after he notified the network of his plans to form an exploratory committee to run for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire.

Bill Shine, EVP of News, confirmed Brown's agreement was terminated.

Brown's exploration of a Senate bid comes as high-profile Republicans from across the country gather in the state with an eye on the 2016 presidential contest.

Friday marks the first day of the Northeast Republican Leadership Conference, which features prospective presidential candidates and GOP leaders looking to court New Hampshire voters. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, a 2012 presidential candidate, and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal headline Friday's speaking program.

Brown's interest in a Senate campaign against New Hampshire's first-term Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen may overshadow the weekend event in Nashua.

Brown was expected to launch an exploratory committee to enter the race as soon as Friday. That's according to several New Hampshire Republican officials who spoke directly to Brown about his plans.
