NEW YORK (AP) - Veteran CNN and CBS reporter and anchorman John Roberts is joining Fox News Channel.

The network announced Monday that Roberts was joining the network as a senior national correspondent.

Roberts was most recently a host of CNN’s “American Morning,” but he was bumped from that job when the network announced a reorganization last month. He had been discussing a transfer to Atlanta, home base for his fiancee, CNN anchor Kyra Phillips.

Roberts spent 14 years with CBS, working as a White House correspondent and anchor of the weekend evening news. He joined CNN in 2006.

Fox executive Michael Clemente says Roberts’ “reputation as a skilled journalist with years of notable experience in the field will be a valuable addition to our news programming.
