/>Mediate and TVNewser are reporting John Roberts has left CNN and will be coming to Atlanta as a news correspondent for rival Fox  News.

Roberts had recently been let go from "American Morning" on CNN.

Earlier reports had said he was in talks to to come to Atlanta as a correspondent for CNN. Obviously, Fox News gave him a better deal. And he can still be closer to Kyra Phillips, the CNN anchor who happens to be Roberts' fiance.

Roberts, a Canadian native, spent 14 years at CBS News before arriving at CNN in 2006. He was at "American Morning" as a co host from 2007 until late last year.

As TV Newser notes:

For Fox News, he brings a ton of credibility and experience to the  network’s news programming. For Roberts, he gets to join the top-rated news channel, albeit without his own program.
