John Roberts ankles CNN for Fox News

Emmy-winning anchor will be based in Atlanta

CNN’s “American Morning” anchor John Roberts is leaving the net to join Fox News Channel as a senior national correspondent based out of Atlanta.

Prior to joining Fox News, Roberts worked at “This Week” and, from 2007 to the end of 2010, “American Morning,” which has seen a recent ratings decline, making 2010 the program’s lowest-rated year on record in total viewers and demo viewers.
