Chris Wallace will be getting a new show with CNN after the network’s streaming service crashed and burned after less than a month.
The Hill reports:
News of plans for Wallace’s show was first reported by Axios, which noted executives from CNN’s new parent company Warner Bros Discovery would announce the move during the company’s “upfront” presentation to advertisers on Wednesday.
Wallace left his longtime gig hosting “Fox News Sunday” late last year to join CNN as it launched the short-lived subscription-based streaming service CNN+.
Executives at Warner Bros Discovery shut the service down after less than 30 days due to a lack of subscribers, bringing an end to Wallace’s “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace” interview-style show.
Axios noted during Wednesday’s upfront presentation, Warner Bros Discovery CEO David Zaslav said of the network: “At a time where most news networks are advocacy networks, we at CNN intend to advocate for journalism first.”
The new CNN show comes a week after it was announced “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace” would be moving to HBO Max.
