As we reported earlier, it was announced today that “Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace will be leaving Fox News after 18 years.
Wallace delivered the news himself, in the last minutes of his show and indicated that he would be heading elsewhere by telling viewers, “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,” Wallace added, the last words that he will utter on the program.
Many conservatives on Twitter speculated that Wallace very well could be heading to CNN.
Young followed that up by sharing a link to the report from Variety in a tweet and deadpanned, “My joke is now confirmed as accurate.”
