Fox News Channel is re-signing Chris Wallace, the network said in a press release Thursday.
Wallace will remain in his role as anchor of “Fox News Sunday,” the network said.
“Throughout his 50-plus years in broadcast journalism, Chris has established himself as one of the most esteemed journalists of our time,” said Jay Wallace president of news for Fox News Channel. “We are delighted to have him continue informing our viewers with his hard-hitting interviews and tough-minded reporting for years to come.”
“After almost 14 years as the anchor of “Fox News Sunday,” I think I am starting to get the hang of it. Rupert Murdoch has asked me to stay on the beat well past the 2020 election,” Chris Wallace said. “I am honored by his confidence, and excited to keep reporting as part of the FOX News team.”
The news anchor moderated the final presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, making him the first Fox news journalist to moderate a presidential debate.
He also moderated the first GOP primary debate of the 2016 cycle, which “delivered a record breaking 24 million viewers and is the most-watched non-sports cable telecast of all time,” according to the press release.
“Fox News Sunday” airs Sunday mornings.
