Fox News continues to lock in its top on-air talent. On the heels of Fox News Channel signing a new deal with lead news anchor Shepard Smith, Fox News has re-signed Chris Wallace. Under his new multi-year contract, Wallace will continue as the anchor of Fox News Sunday, the one-hour public affairs program, which airs on Fox Broadcasting Co. and is replayed on Fox News Channel. “I am delighted to know where I’m going to be spending my Sunday mornings for the next few years — and to be part of an outstanding Fox News team covering the changing balance of power in Washington, the 2012 Presidential election, and beyond,” Wallace said.
In addition to anchoring Fox News Sunday, the Washington D.C.-based Wallace, who joined Fox News in 2003, also contributes to the network’s political and election news coverage. Before joining Fox, Wallace worked at ABC News for 14 years where he served as the senior correspondent for Primetime Thursday and as a substitute host for Nightline. He also worked as the chief White House correspondent for NBC News.
