John Roberts, who anchored CNN "American Morning," was originally set to join CNN's Atlanta bureau after he moved there to be closer to his fiance and fellow CNN reporter Kyra Phillips. But instead of setting up shop at CNN, he'll be reporting for Fox from the same city.
TVNewser.com says Roberts will be "reporting on major domestic and international stories for the network." A news veteran, he joined CNN in 2006 after spending 14 years at CBS and is considered a "top-notch journalist."
His time at CNN, however, was plagued by poor ratings. In 2010, his show “American Morning” saw total viewership drop 31% compared to 2009. But that was during a year which was the network's worst ever for ratings.
"For Fox News, he brings a ton of credibility and experience to the network’s news programming," TVNewser reports. "For Roberts, he gets to join the top-rated news channel, albeit without his own program."
