Grumpy Editor learned that Major Garrett --- who did a great job while at Fox News before going back to print --- next week is returning to full-time television as CBS News’ chief White House correspondent.
He left Fox News two years ago for National Journal where he will continue the print relationship as correspondent at large.
At CBS’ Washington bureau he joins Bill Plante, Mark Knoller and Peter Maer on the White House beat starting Sunday.
For campaign 2012 coverage, National Journal forged a partnership with CBS News. That led to Garrett becoming a substitute anchor on "Face the Nation." He also appeared on "CBS This Morning."
Garrett was Fox News’ chief White House correspondent for eight years. Prior to that, he was a White House correspondent for CNN.
Earlier, in the print field, he was a staffer at U.S. News and World Report, Washington Times, Houston Post, Las Vegas Review-Journal and Amarillo Globe-News.
