Chris Wallace announced on FOX News Sunday that he will depart Fox News effective immediately.

Here’s Wallace’s announcement:

“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,” Wallace.

Sources tell OutKick that Chris Wallace will join CNN+, a streaming service WarnerMedia will launch in Q1 2022. Variety first mentioned that Wallace could head to CNN+ on Sunday.

UPDATE: CNN confirms it has signed Chris Wallace as an anchor for CNN+. Wallace’s new show will air weekdays on CNN+ and feature interviews with newsmakers across politics, business, sports, and culture.

“We are extremely proud of our journalism and the stellar team that Chris Wallace was a part of for 18 years,” Fox News said in a statement.

Wallace’s contract was set to expire this year. Sources add it was his decision to leave the network.

OutKick has learned that FNC will rotate the following anchors among others on FOX News Sunday: Bret Baier, Bill Hemmer, John Roberts, Shannon Bream, Neil Cavuto, Martha MacCallum, and Jennifer Griffin and Harris Faulkner.

Fox News will name a permanent host at a later time.

“The legacy of FOX News Sunday will continue with our star journalists, many of whom will rotate in the position until a permanent host is named,” Fox News adds.

  1. After his Presidential Debate double team it was only a matter of time before he moved to his home with the progressives. How does this fit in with the racial equity argument since he is an old white dude and will probably do his show in a white sheet to fit the narrative of the left?

    • I was thinking the same. Wallace always seemed to me like an establishment apologist who’s overly critical of anyone challenging status quo. Shep Smith was the same. Both seem scared to death someone might dare wake Republicans up from their coma.

  2. Wallace is a never Trumper who sided with the Dems on almost everything (he is a registered Democrat). Glad he’s gone home to his woke friends. Juan Williams seems like a nice enough guy but he is not very bright and I think his half ass arguments made Gutfeld nuts. Happy Juan is buried in the lineup.

  3. This is a further sign that we have devolved into warring camps “Us” vs. “Them” and dissenting opinions are not tolerated by either side any more. That is a very bad sign. Regardless of who is at fault it is bad for our country for us to retreat to monolithic echo chambers.

    Honestly I don’t have any solution other than pointing my finger at the instigators, which is also not good. We need a real leader who can unite us and it isn’t Dementia Joe and it isn’t DJT either.
