Chris Wallace has gone from reporting the news to making headlines himself. Over the weekend, the longtime news anchor informed his viewers that he would leave his post at FOX News Sunday after 18 years.
“It is the last time, and I say this with real sadness, we will meet like this,” he told his viewers.
Not long thereafter, it was revealed that he would join CNN’s new streaming service, CNN+. In his new role, he will host a weekday show that features interviews with influential figures “across politics, business, sports and culture.” CNN President Jeff Zucker said that Wallace’s decision to join the network “speaks volumes about our commitment to journalism.”
“I am thrilled to join CNN+,” Wallace told his new employer.
“After decades in broadcast and cable news, I am excited to explore the world of streaming. I look forward to the new freedom and flexibility streaming affords in interviewing major figures across the news landscape — and finding new ways to tell stories.”
At this time, there is no word as to who will replace Wallace on FOX News Sunday.
