Fox News hires Ed Henry and reworks DC bureau


Ed Henry has been hired away from CNN by Fox News, although he’ll still be reporting for work at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. He’s the new Chief White House Correspondent for Fox News. And that’s led to other assignment changes in the Fox News Washington Bureau.

“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,” said Michael Clemente, Senior Vice President of News Editorial for Fox news.

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.

Henry had been with CNN since 2004, most recently serving as Senior White House correspondent.

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 Washington, DC. 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) DC.
