LOS ANGELES — In a move akin to a baseball player leaving the Boston Red Sox for the New York Yankees, CNN senior White House correspondent Ed Henry is jumping to archrival Fox News.
Henry, who has been with CNN since 2004, will cover all facets of the White House for Fox. Previously, Wendell Goler and Mike Emanuel had been sharing coverage of the White House for Fox. Goler will now serve as senior White House and foreign affairs correspondent, while Emanuel has been named chief congressional correspondent.
Prior to joining CNN, Henry was an editor and columnist at the Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call. He also served as a contributing editor at Washingtonian magazine and as an analyst for WMAL-AM, an all-news radio station in Washington.
Henry has covered President Obama during his visits to Hawaii over the Christmas and New Year's holidays, wearing aloha shirts during his reports from Waikiki on the president's activities.
CNN said a successor for Henry would be named "in the coming days."
