Major Garrett, who left Fox News Channel two years ago for National Journal, is returning to TV and has been named Chief White House correspondent for CBS News. The announcement was made just now by Bob Schieffer on "Face the Nation."
Garrett replaces Norah O'Donnell who had been CBS's lead correspondent at the White House since July 2011. O'Donnell left the White House beat when she joined "CBS This Morning" as co-host in September.
At CBS News, Garrett will once again be working with David Rhodes, CBS News president, who was VP of news at Fox News during Garrett's run there.
Earlier in his career, Garrett was a CNN correspondent before jumping to Fox News in 2002. He starts at CBS News next Sunday.
