Huge loss for Fox. Big deal for CBS. Catherine is one of the few straight up journalists left in her field. I know many women like me admire her. Happy to see her continuing success. https://t.co/pj62cGXDxO

CNN Senior Media Reporter Oliver Darcy described Herridge’s departure as a “massive blow to the Fox newsroom.”
Another massive blow to the Fox newsroom: Catherine Herridge, who has worked at Fox for 23 years, is leaving the network and joining CBS News. In her exit statement, Herridge said, “Facts matter and enterprise reporting will always win the day.” https://t.co/fTrSmTe1cZ

Former Fox News host Greta Van Susteren observed, “maybe she wanted a job change, an adventure.”
Her job says “sr investigative correspondent” which suggests to me that she might be doing longer form,longer investigative pieces at CBS which I know she enjoys;right now she is doing daily appearances and maybe she wanted a job change,an adventure https://t.co/94M5MAT71k
