CNN's Ed Henry to Join Fox News Channel as Chief White House Correspondent

The Fox News Insider has just learned the following news about Ed Henry:

Fox News has signed CNN’s Ed Henry as Chief White House correspondent, announced Michael Clemente, Senior Vice President of News Editorial for the network. He will be responsible for covering all facets of the White House, including the President’s domestic and international activities.

In making the announcement, Clemente said, “We’ve been impressed with Henry’s reporting for a long time and are proud he’s joining the Fox News team where his tenacity and hard news instincts will continue to strengthen the network’s core journalistic assets.”

Fox News’ Washington bureau will undergo additional changes in coverage beats with Henry assuming his new role, including the following transitions:

Wendell Goler has been promoted to Senior White House and Foreign Affairs correspondent where he will take on additional responsibilities covering the State Department; Mike Emanuel has been named Chief Congressional correspondent providing coverage of the House and Senate, as well as breaking news on Capitol Hill; James Rosen becomes Chief Washington correspondent reporting on major Beltway stories and how they impact the country; and Carl Cameron continues in his role as Chief Political correspondent, covering congressional, gubernatorial, and presidential elections for Fox News.

An award-winning journalist, Henry has covered various beats for CNN since 2004. Most recently, he served as Senior White House correspondent and received praise for his reporting on the Bush administration’s contradictory assertions regarding senior Iranian officials sending improvised explosive devices to Iraq. That led him to win the White House Correspondents’ Association’s Merriman Smith Award for excellence in presidential coverage under deadline in 2008.

Prior to reporting on the president and its administration, Henry was a Congressional correspondent where he broke the news that Dubai Ports World would not move forward with its plan to take control over six U.S. ports. During that time, he received the Everett Dirksen Award for Distinguished Reporting of Congress from the National Press Foundation. In 2004, Henry reported from the campaign trail throughout CNN’s coverage of the presidential race, focusing on then Democratic Presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry.

Before his tenure at CNN, Henry was a print journalist at Roll Call for eight years where he served as a senior editor and a columnist. While at the Capitol Hill newspaper, Henry was also a contributing editor at Washingtonian magazine and a chief political analyst for WMAL-AM, ABC News Radio’s Washington affiliate. He began his career as an investigative reporter, working alongside renowned journalist Jack Anderson for five years, with stints as a television analyst at C-SPAN and WUSA-TV (CBS).
