Wallace will take a new adventure in CNN as a news anchor for streaming service CNN+, which will launch in early 2022. “I am thrilled to join CNN+,” Wallace said in a statement. “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.” CNN’s press release reported that Wallace’s weekday show will feature interviews with newsmakers across politics, business, sports, and culture. CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker said the company is thrilled for having Chris help them build the next generation of CNN and news. Meanwhile, members of the Fox News staff are devastated by Wallace’s exit. “Sad to see Chris go — he’s had an amazing run at ‘Fox News Sunday,'” chief political anchor Bret Baier wrote on Twitter. With Wallace’s leave, Fox is set to rotate hosts on “Fox News Sunday” until a permanent one is chosen.
