Chris Wallace Renews Pact With Fox News Channel

Fox News Channel has signed anchor Chris Wallace to a new multi-year contract, ensuring he will stay in his role as anchor of “Fox News Sunday,”  the 21st Century Fox-owned network said Thursday.

“Rupert Murdoch has asked me to stay on the beat well past the 2020 election. I am honored by his confidence, and excited to keep reporting as part of the Fox News team,” Wallace said in a prepared statement. The son of “60 Minutes” newsman Mike Wallace and a former moderator for NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Chris Wallace has worked in broadcast journalism for more than 50 years.

He has hosted “Fox News Sunday,” the one-hour live broadcast that airs on Fox Broadcasting Sunday morning and later in the day on Fox News, for 14 years. Among the people he has interviewed are then-President-elect Donald Trump; Vice President Mike Pence; former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush; former Vice President Dick Cheney, then-Vice President-elect Joe Biden, former U.S. Secretaries of State Hillary Clinton, Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell; and the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

During his tenure at Fox News, Wallace hasplayed an integral role in coverage of the 2016, 2012, 2008 and 2004 elections. On October 19th, 2016, Wallace became the first journalist from Fox News to moderate a general election presidential debate, which took place at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. In August 2015, Wallace co-moderated the first GOP presidential debate of the 2016 election cycle, which delivered a record breaking 24 million viewers and is the most-watched non-sports cable telecast of all time. He also co-moderated the network’s second and third debates of the 2016 cycle, held on January 28th in Des Moines, IA and March 3rd in Detroit, MI.
