Ed Henry will be returning to Fox News after an almost a four-month absence from the airwaves.
The Hill hears that Henry will return to the network this Monday. The 45-year-old will do general assignment reporting and will no longer be the network's chief White House correspondent.
Henry — who is married with two children — was sidelined by Fox management after In Touch magazine revealed an affair with Natalia Lima, a Las Vegas hostess. Lima shared revealing text messages between Henry and her with the publication.
The Hill learned that Fox’s plan for Henry does not include any reporting on the presidential campaign or any political reporting in general.
Henry — formerly of CNN, from 2004 to 2011 — most recently covered Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonGOP political operatives indicted over illegal campaign contribution from Russian national in 2016 Clinton lawyer's indictment reveals 'bag of tricks' Attorney charged in Durham investigation pleads not guilty MORE's presidential campaign. That role has since been filled by Fox News veteran Jennifer Griffin.
”He took the summer off to work out some issues,” an insider tells The Hill.
Henry will continue to be based in Washington and will be assigned to a specific 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. shift, The Hill is told. His first reporting hit will be this Monday on “Fox & Friends” at 6 a.m.
Fox News has confirmed the report.
