After 18 years at Fox and a staple on Sunday mornings, Chris Wallace announced that he was leaving to join rival network’s CNN new streaming service as an anchor.
He was one of the most prominent journalists at Fox News, including moderating a presidential debate last year between Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden.
When announcing to his audience on Sunday morning he said,
“I want to try something new, to go beyond politics to all the things I’m interested in. I’m ready for a new adventure.”
