BILLINGS -

Former Montana governor Brian Schweitzer confirms to KULR-8 News Wednesday night that he has joined the cable news channel MSNBC as a contributor.

Schweitzer appeared on MSNBC's "The Ed Show" Wednesday in what the host called his "first appearance as an MSNBC contributor."

It's not the former governor's first foray into cable news.

Schweitzer has appeared as a guest-host on CNN's "Crossfire" multiple times in recent months.

He has been rumored as a possible presidential contender in 2016.

He has said on national television he plans to visit every county in Iowa before the caucus.
