Fox News Confirms Replacement For Chris Wallace

( )- After a number of months have passed since Chris Wallace resigned from FOX News Sunday, the network has at last selected a permanent substitute anchor to take his position.

The new host position will be filled by Shannon Bream, who you have most likely seen previously in a variety of FOX News programs over the past many years.

She will unquestionably be an upgrade in comparison to Wallace.

As the new host of ‘FOX News Sunday,’ Shannon Bream is the first woman in the program’s 26-year history to assume the anchor role.

Fox News Channel announced on Thursday that she would take over as the new anchor of “FOX News Sunday,” and she will begin hosting the weekly program on September 11.

FOX News Media CEO Suzanne Scott praised Shannon as “an extraordinary journalist, reporter, and anchor who has developed a strong and enduring relationship with the FOX News Media audience.”

Bream, who will become the first woman to anchor the program in its 26-year history, will leave her weeknight program “FOX News @ Night,” and that show will be guest-anchored by a rotation of journalists until a permanent replacement is named.

Bream said that over the course of the past 15 years, it had been a privilege to report on important news from across the nation’s capital for FOX News. She said, “I am incredibly happy for the opportunity to host a Sunday show, and I am looking forward to taking on this new job.”

Additionally, Bream will continue to serve as the principal legal correspondent for the network. Since working for Fox News Channel in 2007, she has provided coverage of all critical decisions handed down by the Supreme Court.

Fox States that Bream’s days behind the desk “over-delivered the 2021 average of the show by 20%.” Some of her turn on “Fox News Sunday” also spurred significant increases among viewers between 25 and 54, the demographic most coveted by advertisers in news programming.

Bream practiced business law before she became a journalist, focusing on instances involving racial discrimination and sexual harassment. Her B.S. in Business Management with honors from Liberty University complements her law degree from Florida State University College of Law, from which she also graduated with honors.
