Chris Wallace Quits Fox News after 18 Years: ‘I Want to Try Something New’

Fox News anchor Chris Wallace announced Sunday at the end of his broadcast that he is leaving the network after 18 years.

He said he is leaving because he’s “ready for a new adventure.”

“After 18 years, I have decided to leave Fox,” Wallace said.

“I want to try something new, to go beyond politics, to all of the things I’m interested in.

“This is my final Fox News Sunday.

“It is the last time — and I say this with real sadness — we will meet like this.

“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.

“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.

“I’m ready for a new adventure.

“And I hope you’ll check it out.

“And so, for the last time, dear friends, that’s it for today. Have a great week.

“And I hope you’ll keep watching Fox News Sunday.”
