Journalist and correspondent, associated with Fox News, Edward Henry, and better known as Ed Henry, is an American broadcast journalist and the senior White House correspondent for Fox News Channel, and is based in the network's Washington, D.C. bureau.
Ed was born in New York City, on of June 20, 1971 and is currently residing in Mary land. He studied in Siena College to earn a bachelor’s degree in English.
He started his carrier with noted columnist Jack Anderson and later in 2003, he started working as a political analyst on local radio shows. He still contributes as an editor in Washington, a news tabloid.
In 2005 he served as a moderator in CNN. In 2006, he started covering White House while in 2008 he was granted a senior. Out of the three reporters at the White House, he was the only leading correspondent. Since President Barak Obama took over the office, he started working full time in that job and asked various questions during conferences and press releases, directly addressing to the President.
Ed covered the vacations of President Obama in Hawaii with radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh and was present at site when Rush was hospitalized due to chest pain. He covered Court House shooting in 2010, at Las Vegas, live for CNN.
Henry left CNN to become a chief correspondent at White House for Fox News Channel, in 2011. It was rumored that Henry’s contract was not being renewed at CNN. During his one interview he said that he always would like to work with the number one in the field. He then referred to his association with Fox as welcoming and great, and made clear that he has no regrets to leave CNN. In his view, the CNN is no near in the competition to Fox News.
During the election coverage, he again pointed fingers at CNN, with the accusation that Fox was unfairly being pulled down by some media people, just because the network was doing a great job and gaining popularity, while others were making ‘rubbish statements’.
Henry’s wife Shirley Hung is also associated with the media world and surprisingly – #not – she works for CNN as a senior producer. The couple married in 2010, and the cake prepared for the wedding had 22 layers of chocolate with whipped cream frosting, weighing 70 pounds, and was an exact replica of the White House. They got engaged in February 2010 and the marriage took place in June.
In 2005, Ed received an award for his distinguished work when reporting for the congress from the National Pres. He also won a Merriman Smith Award from the White House Correspondents Association, in 2008, for doing a job done under pressure with a pretty tight deadline.
Though Henry’s net worth is not disclosed, it is assumed that he was also not interested in renewal of his contract, because he has jumped to a high salary in Fox News.
Henry, is mostly known for his boldness, since he never hesitates to ask tough question that aim to reveal the truth, even if that means that he may make the person being interviewed feel uncomfortable. In that concept, it’s worth mentioning that he once called President Obama "Rapper-In-Chief", a decision that got a tad out of hand afterwards.
Another time, while questioning President Obama which President was over looking and Henry pushed him on it Obama answered “I kept mum because I should know what I speak, before I speak”.
Later referring to the quote Henry said “He was doing his job and I was doing mine”.
