After 18 years as a Fox News anchor, one of the network’s least liked hosts, Chris Wallace is leaving the network. Wallace said he wants to leave the network to change pace and says his departure is immediate. CNN took a victory lap, claiming Wallace will be headed for their upcoming CNN plus subscriber-based streaming service.
“It is the last time — and I say this with real sadness — we will meet like this,” Wallace said. “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. 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. It’s been a great ride.”
