The void left by Chris Wallace leaving Fox News has finally been filled.
The new “Fox News Sunday” host will be Shannon Bream.
Among others, Bream and Bret Baier were believed to be at the head of the pack to take over the show.
Bream has been doing an exceptional job filling in, as has Bret Baier.
The network, however, has been gushing over Bream and her hard-hitting journalistic style.
Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott stated, “Shannon is an outstanding journalist, reporter and anchor who has cultivated a strong and enduring relationship with the Fox News Media audience.”
Bream starts full-time on September 11.
Bream, after being named to the new role, stated, “It has been an honor to cover major news throughout Washington over the last 15 years at Fox News.
“I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to host a Sunday show and look forward to this new role.”
Fox News stated that Bream’s numbers were beating the 2021 numbers by about 20 percent, making this an easy call.
That probably has as much to do with the dislike of Wallace as it does Bream’s talents.
Wallace had gone over to the dark side in his waning days, so viewership had surely fallen off toward the end of his days with Fox.
Wallace went to CNN seeking greener pastures, but his CNN+ show flopped and he has been since filling in as a contributor on other panel shows.
For that, CNN is paying $9 million a year.
