She tweeted about the switch on Monday.
“She is not only a seasoned journalist with a great curiosity and passion for the news, but she has a presence on camera that I think is very hard to find. I can’t wait to have her on the air at CNN,” CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker said in a statement
Camerota will contribute to all programs across CNN, the network reported, with a permanent role yet to be announced.
She previously was co-host of “America’s News Headquarters” on Fox News Channel, co-anchored “Fox & Friends Weekend” and contributed to the “Fox & Friends” weekday franchise.
"From the moment Jeff Zucker shared his vision for innovative storytelling at CNN, I wanted to be part of it,” Camerota said in a statement. “I know the power of cable news and it's exciting to be going to the place that invented it and continues to be the standard bearer for stories of international import. I've always admired the fine work of the journalists at CNN and I'm honored to join their ranks."
Friends and colleagues congratulated Camerota on Twitter.
