Major Garrett Named CBS News Chief White House Correspondent

Major Garrett has been named CBS News' Chief White House Correspondent; it was announced by CBS News Chairman and 60 MINUTES Executive Producer Jeff Fager and CBS News President David Rhodes. The appointment is effective on Nov. 25.

Joining CBS News fulltime, Garrett will build on a relationship fostered with CBS News viewers over the course of Campaign 2012. With CBS EVENING NEWS Anchor and Managing Editor Scott Pelley, Garrett co-hosted the network's South Carolina Republican Primary debate that was co-sponsored by CBS News and National Journal in Nov. 2011. He appears regularly on the revamped CBS This Morning from both Studio 57 and the field-and joined CBS News' special coverage of the fall debates in Denver, Hempstead, and Boca Raton.

As Chief White House Correspondent, Garrett will report for all CBS News broadcasts and platforms. He will also occasionally substitute as anchor of FACE THE NATION.

Garrett's work with CBS News to this point has come within the framework of a partnership between the news division and National Journal. Even as he joins CBS News, that partnership continues, and Garrett will contribute to National Journal as a Correspondent at Large and continue to write his widely-read, weekly column.

Prior to National Journal, Garrett was the Chief White House Correspondent for Fox News. During his eight years at Fox, Garrett also covered two presidential elections, Congress, the war in Iraq, and other major stories.

Before joining Fox News, Garrett was a White House correspondent for CNN during the administrations of George W. Bush and Bill Clinton.

Previously, he was a senior editor and congressional correspondent for U.S. News and World Report, where he reported on Congress and the impeachment of President Clinton.

He was a congressional reporter for The Washington Times (1990-95), and the newspaper's deputy national editor (1995-97).

Earlier in his career Garrett was a reporter for The Houston Post, Las Vegas Review-Journal and the Amarillo Globe-News.

Garrett is also the author of three books: Common Cents, with former Rep. Tim Penny, D-Minn., Little, Brown Publisher, 1995; The 15 Biggest Lies in Politics, St. Martin's 1999; The Enduring Revolution, Crown Forum 2005.

Garrett was graduated in 1984 from the University of Missouri with degrees in Journalism and Political Science. A native of San Diego, CA, he lives in Washington, D.C.
