Veteran anchor Chris Wallace quits Fox News
Veteran anchor Chris Wallace signed off his Fox News Sunday show after 18 years to join CNN’s new streaming service.
CNN announced shortly after his show ended that Wallace, who is 74, will join the streaming service CNN+ as an anchor. The service is due to debut sometime next year.
“It is the last time, and I say this with real sadness, we will meet like this,” Wallace said on Fox on Sunday morning.
“Eighteen years ago, the bosses here at Fox promised me they would never interfere with a guest I booked or a question I asked. And they kept that promise,” he said.
Wallace was a veteran broadcast network newsman, working at both ABC and NBC News, before the late Roger Ailes lured him to Fox with the promise of his own Sunday show.
He was the first Fox News personality to moderate a presidential debate, doing it in 2016 and 2020.
“I have been free to report to the best of my ability, to cover the stories I think are important, to hold our country’s leaders to account,” Wallace said Sunday. “It’s been a great ride.”
His announcement even took the guests on his show Sunday by surprise. The decision is seen as a major blow to Fox News.
For years, Wallace co-existed alongside Fox’s bigger and better known stars of prime time.

Prince Harry is accusing the royals of hiding phone hacking from him

He appeared at a London court with pop superstar Elton John to deliver a high-profile privacy claim launched by celebrities and other figures against Daily Mail’s publisher.
In a witness statement, The Duke of Sussex says: “The Institution made it clear that we did not need to know anything about phone hacking and it was made clear to me that the Royal Family did not sit in the witness box because that could open up a can of worms.”
He went on to say the Royal Family’s “strict no comment policy” meant that “even the worst or most suspicious articles were often never brought to my attention”.
