Ed Henry Moves From CNN to Fox News Channel

News vet’s hire as chief White House correspondent spurs numerous shifts in cable network’s Washington bureau

Ed Henry, formerly senior White House correspondent for CNN, has been hired as Fox News Channel's chief White House correspondent, Fox announced on Monday.

Henry's responsibilities will include covering all facets of the White House, including President Barack Obama's foreign and domestic activities.

In 2008, Henry, who had been with CNN since 2004, won a White House Correspondents' Association's Merriman Smith Award for his coverage of the Bush administration's contradictory claims about Iranian officials sending improvised explosive devices to Iraq.

Fox News' senior VP of news editorial Michael Clemente praised Henry's "tenacity and hard news instincts" when announcing the hire, noting, "We've been impressed with Henry's reporting for a long time."

Henry's hire has spurred numerous other changes in Fox News' Washington bureau.

White House correspondent Wendell Goler has been moved up to senior White House and foreign affairs correspondent, and will also take on duties covering the State Department.

Mike Emanuel has also been promoted, from White House correspondent to chief Congressional correspondent. (In addition to delivering House and Senate coverage, Emanuel will handle breaking Capitol Hill news.)

James Rosen will now serve as chief Washington correspondent.
