CBS News has named Major Garrett to chief White House correspondent, who also occasionally substitutes as anchor of CBS’s Sunday beltway show “Face the Nation,” which has been enjoying a ratings surge since expanding to a one-hour format.

Garrett has been seen on CBS News as part of a partnership between the news division and National Journal. Garrett will contribute to National Journal going forward as a correspondent-at-large and weekly columnist.

Before joining National Journal, he was chief White House correspondent for Fox News Channel, where he worked eight years, following a stint at CNN as a White House correspondent.

The former Washington Times congressional reporter and deputy national editor also once worked at U.S. News & World Report.
