Back in early December, anti-Trumper Chris Wallace announced that he was leaving the network for CNN+.
Fox News host Chris Wallace announced on his Sunday show that he is resigning from the network after 18 years, saying he is “ready for a new adventure,” which he said following the broadcast was moving to CNN’s streaming service.
“After 18 years — this is my final ‘Fox News Sunday.’ It is the last time — and I say this with real sadness — we will meet like this,” Wallace said during his final broadcast with the network.
“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 continued. “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.”
The ratings are in — it doesn’t look good for Chris Wallace.
Since Chris Wallace left Fox News the ratings for the Sunday morning show, “Fox News Sunday,” have actually increased.
Fox News’ Sunday morning show, “Fox News Sunday,” has not suffered a decline in the ratings since former anchor Chris Wallace announced his departure for CNN’s streaming service.
