Catherine Herridge has announced her decision to join CBS. Her contract ended over the summer. However, Fox News attempted to re-sign her into another contract. Being a founding employee to Fox, they valued her greatly.
She not only declined to stay but she publicly disparaged Fox News and President Trump in one shot. She mentioned that the ‘facts matter’ and thanked the Special Counsel report and impeachment inquiry.
More from the Federalist Papers:
“I am grateful to Mr. Murdoch for the opportunity to cover the most impactful stories of the last 23 years, most recently the Special Counsel report and impeachment inquiry,” she said.
“I have received great personal satisfaction from mentoring the next generation of reporters and producers and sharing my journalistic values — that facts matter and enterprise reporting will always win the day,” she said.
Fox News also issued a statement thanking Herridge for her work with the company and praising the work that she has done.
“As a founding employee, over the last 23 years, Catherine Herridge has been an asset to FOX News. From her breaking news headlines at the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice to her reporting after the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the investigation into Princess Diana’s death, she has always been at the forefront of every beat she has covered,” Fox News said.
“We are grateful for Catherine’s many contributions to the network, wish her continued success and were proud to honor her as she received the Tex McCrary Award for Journalism last week from the Congressional Medal of Honor Society for her enterprise reporting at FOX News,” it said.
And CBS issued its own statement welcoming the veteran news reporter to the CBS staff.
