Catherine Herridge, a Fox News Channel veteran who has been with that network since it was founded in 1996, is moving to rival CBS News.
She will work as a senior investigative correspondent out of Washington, CBS News said, and will start in November.
Herridge is the second long-serving Fox News journalist to leave the Fox Corporation-owned cable-news outlet in recent weeks, and her departure may give a new boost to recent speculation that the networks news-side employees have grown frustrated during a period when its opinion hosts have largely used their programs to lend support to President Donald Trump and his administration, sometimes criticizing news reports.
Shepard Smith, another long-serving Fox News journalist who was seen as the networks main news anchor, surprised viewers earlier this month by announcing his departure on a Friday-afternoon broadcast. Smith had tangled on air with opinion host Tucker Carlson.
Herridges move is said to have been in the works for several weeks and is not tied to Smiths exit.

All day and night all the other channels shill for RATs. This is so ridiculous. If she wants to join that, good riddance.
Big loss. Herridge is an excellent reporter...one of the few.
She should have had an anchor spot or her own show long ago with Fox if that was what she wanted. She is impeccable. Fox’s loss. She is one correspondent I trust. Apparently, so do her sources.
Or maybe she left because Fox management has tilted to the left.
She will need a lobotomy if she is going to work for that outfit.
Is this a bigger move, tied to rumors of the Viacom Chairwoman Shari Redstone planning a conservative Fox rival?
Sorry to hear this. I hope she continues her excellent reporting.
We don’t know the real reason for her change. But we do know the media cannot be trusted to tell us the truth.
And going to CBS is better?
And going to CBS is better?
And CBS will shut her down. And that’s the point.
Why can’t C.H. see that?
Or maybe she’s left because she’s happy to shut up for a bigger salary.
I don’t see her swinging hard to the left now that she works for the enemy (/s)
“Sad News for Fox.”
Faux epsteined several months ago, perhaps longer.
She’s one of my favorites at Fox.
I wish her luck.
She’s good at what she does.
CBS will get her mind fixed.
Either CBS wants some honest reporting or she has been turned, afraid it may be the latter.
I think she will regret this decision, I guarantee you CBS will Silence and Censor her.
