CBS News announced a key hire Thursday, naming a Washington-based senior investigative correspondent. Veteran journalist Catherine Herridge joins CBS after a stint as chief intelligence correspondent for Fox News Channel, where she covered the intelligence community, the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security.
Herridge has reported on intelligence issues from Washington and around the world for the past three decades, in addition to conducting newsmaking interviews and consumer investigations. In her new role at CBS News, which begins in November, she will report original investigations and cover national security and intelligence matters.
“Catherine Herridge is a skilled investigative correspondent who has consistently brought depth and originality to her reporting,” said Christopher Isham, vice president and Washington Bureau chief for CBS News. “We are very excited that she will be joining the outstanding team at the Washington Bureau.”
Added Herridge: “CBS News has always placed a premium on enterprise journalism and powerful investigations. I feel privileged to join a team where facts and storytelling will always matter.”
