A charter member of the Fox News Channel team is heading for the exit door.
Catherine Herridge is joining CBS News as senior investigative correspondent, after 23 years with FNC.
She will be based in Washington, covering national security and intelligence issues and start in November.
Herridge said, “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.”
Herridge is the second long-serving Fox News journalist to leave the cable-news outlet in recent weeks.
Shep Smith surprised viewers early last month by announcing his departure on a Friday-afternoon broadcast.
Don’t read a lot into that.
Her contract lapsed this summer and the move has been in the works for some time now, we’re told.
