After the embarrassment of Chris Cuomo's unethical handling of his brother, and a producer who was arrested for child sex trafficking, is CNN now trying to change their image? Sunday, Fox News host Chris Wallace announced that he is leaving the network after 18 years, mentioning an intention to "try something new."

Some are speculating after the debacle of a not guilty Rittenhouse verdict and the guilty verdict in the Jussie Smollett case, two cases where several of CNN's high priced talent chimed in early and incorrectly, the owner AT&T, is trying to pivot the network towards a less partisan stance. Scoring a Moderate-Conservative like Chris Wallace will go a long way towards bringing the Left-leaning network towards the center, but clearly, there is a lot of work to be done.

In his announcement yesterday, Wallace said "After 18 years, this is my final Fox News Sunday. "It is the last time, and I say this with real sadness, we will meet like this."

"I want to try something new, to go beyond politics, to all the things I'm interested in," Wallace said. "I'm ready for a new adventure, and I hope you'll check it out."

Wallace explained that 18 years ago, his superiors at the network pledged to him that "they would never interfere with a guest I booked or a question I asked," adding that they've kept their word over the years.

"I have been free to report to the best of my ability, to cover the stories I think are important, to hold our country's leaders to account," Wallace said.

"We’ve covered five presidential elections, interviewed every President since George H.W. Bush, traveled the world — sitting down with France’s Emmanuel Macron and Russia’s Vladimir Putin," he added. "And I’ve gotten to spend Sunday mornings with you."

"It may sound corny, but I feel we’ve built a community here," he continued. "There’s a lot you can do on Sundays. The fact you’ve chosen to spend this hour with us is something I cherish. But after 18 years, I have decided to leave Fox. I want to try something new, to go beyond politics to all the things I’m interested in. I’m ready for a new adventure. And I hope you’ll check it out. And so — for the last time, dear friends — that’s it for today. Have a great week. And I hope you’ll keep watching Fox News Sunday."

Wallace first joined the Fox team in 2003 and has worked in the broadcasting industry for more than 50 years, according to his biography on the Fox News website.

"We are extremely proud of our journalism and the stellar team that Chris Wallace was a part of for 18 years," Fox News said in a statement regarding Wallace's departure. "The legacy of Fox News Sunday will continue with our star journalists, many of whom will rotate in the position until a permanent host is named."

Amid the buzz encircling Wallace's departure, CNN published a statement announcing that Wallace would be joining CNN, the network's new video streaming service set to launch in 2022.

"I am thrilled to join CNN," Wallace said in the press release. "After decades in broadcast and cable news, I am excited to explore the world of streaming. I look forward to the new freedom and flexibility streaming affords in interviewing major figures across the news landscape — and finding new ways to tell stories."
