TVNewser has learned CNN White House correspondent and White House Correspondents Association officer Ed Henry will vote for Fox News to take over the front row White House briefing room seat vacated earlier this week with the abrupt resignation of Helen Thomas.
Henry is one of three officers on the WHCA, the others being Ed Chen of Bloomberg and David Jackson of USA Today. Other board members include Doug Mills of The New York Times, Steve Scully of C-SPAN, Don Gonyea of NPR, Julie Mason of the DC Examiner and Caren Bohan of Reuters.
CNN only got a front row seat after the renovations of the James S. Brady briefing room in 2007. CNN was awarded the seat due to seniority — 27 years on the air at the time. We’re told Fox News supported the move then. And now, as the #1 cable news network and almost 14 years on the air, this may be FNC’s time.
