Fox News anchor Chris Wallace announced Sunday that he is immediately leaving the network.
After working at Fox News for 18 years, Wallace announced his abrupt departure at the conclusion of “Fox News Sunday,” the show he has anchored since 2003.
“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.
“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,” Wallace 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.”
