Chris Wallace is ditching Fox News. Huh.
Honestly, this editor isn’t the least bit surprised but it would appear his announcement did catch some people off guard.
#BREAKING: Chris Wallace announces he's QUITTING Fox News and 'Fox News Sunday.' Today was his last show.
My bet? He's going to CNN+.

Best wishes to Chris Wallace, who just surprised us at the DC bureau of Fox News by announcing his last week hosting Fox News Sunday, after nearly 20 years.

To be fair, people’s reactions to Wallace leaving are all across the board on Twitter, some saying how much they’ll miss him …
Chris Wallace and I have been friends since we covered the House of Representatives together in the late 70's. I was delighted we ended up together at Fox News, and am sad to see him go. I wish him all the best in his next adventures. The photo below is from New Hampshire, 2020. pic.twitter.com/4LUJsVke0M

Chris Wallace had an incredible run. He served as a great example of how to do news – and do it well – during tumultuous and often disorienting times. It was an honor to appear on his panel. Eager to see what comes next.

Others … not so much.
So what time slot will Chris Wallace be getting at CNN?

Chris Wallace has truly always been a CNN man. Smug, dishonest, and pretend. He’ll fit right in.

Chris Wallace is a liberal hack who laughingly pretends to be an unbiased journalist.

Tough crowd, Chris.
This editor is betting on CNN’s new streaming service … but we’ll see.
