Ed Henry makes move to Fox News

Fox News shuffles DC bureau

CNN senior White House correspondent Ed Henry is ankling the Turner newsie to join Fox News.

Henry sent an email to CNN staff Monday morning saying though the decision was difficult, “I’ve landed a terrific opportunity elsewhere that I am absolutely thrilled about.”

Henry will be chief White House correspondent for Fox News. The move prompted some further rearranging of Fox’s D.C. bureau: Wendell Goler has been upped to senior White House and foreign affairs correspondent, Mike Emanuel is now chief congressional correspondent, and James Rosen takes the title of chief Washington correspondent.

“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, FNC’s senior veep of news editorial.

Henry has worked for CNN since 2004, earning the White House Correspondents’ Assn.’s Merriman Smith award for excellence in presidential coverage under deadline in 2008.

“We thank Ed for his contributions and wish him the best,” said a CNN spokeswoman. “We will be naming our new chief White House correspondent in the coming days.”
