“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.
“Eighteen years ago, the bosses here at Fox promised me they would never interfere with a guest I booked or a question I asked. And they kept that promise.
“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. It’s been a great ride.
“We’ve covered five presidential elections, interviewed every president since George H.W. Bush, traveled the world — sitting down with France’s Emanuel Macron and Russia’s Vladimir Putin.
“And I’ve gotten to spend Sunday mornings with you. It may sound corny, but I feel we’ve built a community here. 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.” – Fox News anchor Chris Wallace, this morning.
