CNN’s senior White House correspondent Ed Henry has jumped ship and is now chief White House correspondent for Fox News Channel.
Henry’s hiring is part of additional changes in FNC’s Washington bureau, the cable news network announced Monday. Wendell Goler and Mike Emanuel, who had shared White House responsibilities, have received new assignments.
Goler has been named Senior White House and Foreign Affairs correspondent, and will take on additional responsibilities covering the State Department. Emanuel has been named Chief Congressional correspondent. Additionally, James Rosen is now Chief Washington correspondent, covering “major Beltway stories and how they impact the country” while Carl Cameron continues to be Chief Political correspondent, covering congressional, gubernatorial and presidential elections for FNC.
Henry’s move is the latest defection of on-air talent from CNN to FNC since January; that’s when John Roberts, who was at the time the latest in a revolving door of CNN “American Morning” co-anchors to be removed from the gig, joined FNC as a national correspondent.
Before becoming CNN’s senior White House correspondent, Henry was a CNN congressional correspondent. Before joining CNN, he’d been a print journalist at Roll Call for eight years, serving as senior editor and a columnist.
