Per CBS News:
“CBS News has always placed a premium on enterprise journalism and powerful investigations,” Herridge said in a statement. “I feel privileged to join a team where facts and storytelling will always matter.”
Herridge began her career as a London-based correspondent for ABC News before joining Fox News in 1996. At Fox, Herridge covered the intelligence community, the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security.
At CBS News, she will report original investigations and cover national security and intelligence matters that impact the country.
“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.”
In a statement, Fox praised Harris for her decades of diligent reporting. The network and its seasoned veteran appear to have parted ways amicably.
