Dr. Ben Carson, the celebrated neurosurgeon, has become something of a conservative star in the past year.

He became a beloved figure on the right after he assailed President Barack Obama‘s health care reform legislation just a few feet away from the Commander-in-Chief at a National Prayer Breakfast.

However, his anti-gay rhetoric cost him a commencement speaking gig at Johns Hopkins University and his popularity on the right appeared to be on the decline.

Not so fast. The outspoken right-winger reportedly has found a home on Fox News.

Carson, who already has a column in the Washington TImes, will make his first appearance on the Wednesday edition of The Kelly File, hosted by Megyn Kelly.
