Wallace, who was with Fox News for two decades, signed a multi-million dollar deal with CNN last year.

Warner Bros. Discovery, CNN’s new parent company, plans to announce during its upfront presentation to advertisers on Wednesday that Chris Wallace will host a Sunday evening show on CNN.
Why it matters: The longtime Fox News host had recently moved to CNN to launch a show on its now-defunct streaming service, CNN+.
Details: Wallace, who was hosting an interview show four days per week on the streaming service, will move to a weekly Sunday evening show on CNN’s linear network, two sources tell Axios.
- CNN struck a multimillion-dollar contract with Wallace last year. The move shocked the news industry, given Wallace’s nearly two-decade career at Fox.
- Later during the presentation, the network confirmed the move and noted that Wallace’s same interview show from CNN+ will debut this fall on HBO Max and will be on CNN Sunday evenings.
