Former FOX news host Chris Wallace is set to debut his failed show yet again on CNN during Sunday primetime now.
With Fox News’ recent announcement that Shannon Bream will be hosting Fox News Sunday, CNN has made a similar move as well. CNN is moving Chris Wallace to a Sunday Primetime slot to directly compete with his previous show.
Every Sunday, Chris Wallace will host a show on CNN at 7 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, CNN confirmed to the Daily Caller on Thursday. It was reported that CNN would announce Wallace’s weekly show, “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace? The show will air on CNN Sundays and on HBO Max.
Next News Network previously reported “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace?” is the same name as Wallace’s short-lived show on the streaming service. “The first episodes of Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace? on CNN+ featured interviews with CEOs and media moguls, Hollywood legends and newsmakers across politics, business, world affairs, sports and culture, setting a high bar for the in-depth conversations both HBO Max and CNN audience will now enjoy.” a CNN press release stated.
Newsmax writes. He always tries to play the adult in the room: the down-the-middle, no-nonsense newsman who refuses to be defined by conservative fringe opinions. In reality, his newfound “bravery” is probably nothing more than a petty and unprofessional attempt to gain favor with his new employer.
There is no hiding the competitive spirit of FOX News or CNN. Both networks criticize each other’s coverage. CNN’s management probably sees snagging Wallace as a coup, hoping to reestablish the network as a news-focused one. However, Wallace is far from a white knight, and he won’t attract viewers to CNN from FOX News.
If Chris Wallace’s Trend with CNN continues maybe the whole network will get shut down after this show goes the way of CNN+.
