A longtime investigative reporter who was terminated by CBS News this year will appear as a witness next week at a congressional hearing on matters surrounding press freedom.

Catherine Herridge will testify publicly on April 11 before the House Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on the Constitution and Limited Government about her termination, according to a source with direct knowledge of the plans.

Other witnesses at the hearing will include another longtime journalist Sharyl Attkisson, as well as Mary Cavallaro, the chief broadcast officer at the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists News and Broadcast Department, the source said.

Herridge, a journalist of over 25 years, worked at Fox News until 2019 before becoming a senior investigative correspondent at CBS News. She gained prominence in recent years for her coverage of Republicans’ efforts to investigate the Biden family but was among a batch of employees laid off by the network in February.

Her exit made headlines after several reports indicated that her former employer “seized” her items, including confidential source information, upon her termination.
