WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - You may be seeing more of tea party firebrand Allen West after being ousted from Congress, but don't expect to see him trying to get his old seat back.

The Republican tells Fox News he'll begin hosting an online TV show called "Next Generation Today."

And he tells The Palm Beach Post Wednesday he has no interest in running for against Rep. Patrick Murphy again in 2014. He did not entirely rule out a run in another district.

West narrowly lost to Murphy in his race for a second term.
