CNN reports that "anchor and correspondent John Roberts is leaving the network to join Fox News Network."

Roberts had been taken off CNN's American Morning last month. The Orlando Sentinel's Hal Boedeker says he will be a "senior national correspondent" for Fox.

Roberts, who joined CNN in  2006, was with CBS News before that and at one time was thought to be an candidate to anchor the CBS Evening News.
