The Fox News Channel named a new chief White House correspondent today. Starting on Inauguration Day, the job will belong to John Roberts.
“Roberts, who joined Fox News in 2011, served as senior national correspondent. He then reported on the Republican presidential primary and eventually President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign,” the AP reports. “Prior to that, he was co-anchor of CNN’s ‘American Morning’ and its senior national correspondent.”
Roberts previously spent 14 years at CBS News, where his assignments included a stint as chief White House correspondent.
“Fox News’ White House position was previously filled by Ed Henry until his suspension in May after a magazine story detailed an extramarital affair he was allegedly having with a Las Vegas woman described as a hostess,” the AP report notes. “Henry now serves as chief national correspondent.”
