FOX News viewers rejoice. The whiny never-Trump host Chris Wallace is leaving the network.
Wallace made the announcement this weekend at the end of his FOX News Sunday program, without saying where he was going.
We now know he is moving to CNN’s streaming service CNN+.
Chris Wallace to Join CNN Plus After Fox News Channel Departure
Chris Wallace is leaving Fox News Channel, he announced on his program Sunday morning, and will join the CNN Plus streaming-video outlet, a move that abruptly sunders the cable-news outlet’s connection with one of its most recognized and independent journalists.
Wallace delivered the news himself, in the last minutes of his “Fox News Sunday,” which he has anchored for nearly two decades on the Fox Corporation-owned outlet. “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. And I hope you’ll check it out,” said Wallace. The words will be the last he utters on the program.
CNN confirmed Wallace’s jump less than two hours after he announced his departure, and said he would lead a daily show during which he would interview newsmakers from the worlds of politics, business, sports and culture. Fox News last announced a contract extension for Wallace in 2017, and his current agreement with Fox News is believed to coming to an end.

He will be better off at CNN. It’s a better fit for his Trump Derangement Syndrome.
