Chris Wallace is the anchor of "Fox News Sunday" (FNS), Fox Broadcasting Company's Sunday morning public affairs program. He also contributes to Fox News Channel's (FNC) "America's Election HQ" coverage and is based in Washington, D.C.
Most recently, Wallace sat down with former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in his first televised interview after his loss in the 2012 election. Wallace played an integral role in FNC's coverage of the 2012 presidential election, interviewing a number of top Obama administration officials in this election cycle, including former Chief of Staff Jack Lew, former senior adviser David Plouffe, and former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, as well as former senior adviser David Axelrod. Wallace also interviewed all the Republican presidential candidates during the 2012 Republican primaries and served as a panelist in a number of FNC's Republican primary debates.
In 2008, Wallace landed an interview with then-Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., after implementing the "Obama Watch" to count the time that had lapsed since Obama agreed to appear on "FNS." He also served as a panel member and moderator for FNC's South Carolina, New Hampshire, and Orlando debates during the 2008 primary campaign season. Wallace played an integral role in Fox News' "You Decide" 2008 and 2004 election coverage, reporting live from major election events, including Election Night, the presidential debates, the Democratic and Republican Conventions, the New Hampshire Primary, and the Iowa Caucuses.
Wallace has won every major broadcast news award for his reporting, including three Emmy Awards, the Dupont-Columbia Silver Baton, the Peabody Award, the Sol Taishoff Award for Broadcast Journalism, which was awarded to him by the National Press Foundation, and most recently, the 2013 Paul White Award for lifetime achievement and service to electronic journalism from the Radio Television Digital News Association. Wallace has been described as an "equal opportunity inquisitor" by The Boston Globe, "an aggressive journalist," "sharp edged" and "solid" by The Washington Post and "an equal-opportunity ravager" by The Miami Herald.
Before joining Fox News, Wallace worked at ABC News for 14 years where he served as the senior correspondent for "Primetime Thursday" and as a substitute host for "Nightline." During his tenure with ABC News, Wallace hosted multiple groundbreaking investigations and received numerous awards for his work.
Prior to joining ABC News, Wallace was with NBC News where he served as the chief White House correspondent from 1982-1989. While at NBC, he covered the 1980, 1984 and 1988 presidential campaigns as well as the Democratic and Republican conventions in those years. Wallace anchored "Meet the Press" from 1987-1988, making him the only person to have hosted two Sunday talk shows. He also anchored the Sunday edition of "NBC Nightly News" from 1982-1984 and 1986-1987. Wallace joined NBC as a reporter with WNBC-TV in New York City in 1975.
