Shannon Bream will succeed Chris Wallace on ‘Fox News Sunday’

Veteran anchor Shannon Bream is the new anchor of Fox News Sunday, succeeding Chris Wallace on the Washington Roundtable program.

Bream’s appointment was announced Thursday after Fox News used a rotation of fill-ins following Wallace’s departure in December.

Wallace was a presenter for 19 years before joining CNN for his ill-fated streaming service. Wallace remains with CNN, which will air its interview program on weekends later this year.

Bream had the highest ratings among those who had started as a Fox News Sunday anchor in the past seven months, which informed the decision to make her the job on a permanent basis. According to Nielsen data, their performances boosted the show’s viewership by 30% in January.

Bream, a former corporate attorney, has been with Fox News since 2007 and serves as the station’s senior legal correspondent for the Supreme Court. She also hosts Fox News @ Night, a nighttime news show from Washington.

Bream will take over Fox News Sunday on September 12th. She stays on the legal beat but is replaced on “Fox News @ Night”.

Bream’s standing at Fox News has grown in recent years thanks to her success as a writer. Her two most recent titles, The Women of the Bible Speak and The Mothers and Daughters of the Bible Speak: Lessons on Faith From Nine Biblical Families, both reached #1 on the New York Times Best Seller list.

Fox News Sunday is the only show that appears on both Fox News and the Fox broadcast network. The interview format is similar to other Sunday programs such as NBC’s Meet the Press and CBS’ Face the Nation, which traditionally set the agenda for Beltway news early in the week.

Fox News Sunday tends to draw attention for surprise Republican guests with tough questions, used to not getting much pushback from the like-minded anchors on the conservative cable channel. The program also books a broader spectrum of Democratic politicians.

Like her predecessor Wallace, Bream focuses on direct news on the channel and steers clear of political opinion, even when appearing on the more outspoken Fox News panel shows like Outnumbered and Gutfeld!

“Fox News @ Night,” which airs at midnight on the East Coast, is the most-watched cable news program in the Los Angeles market at 9 p.m. Pacific Time. Replacement anchors will fill Bream’s chair until a permanent replacement is named. Shannon Bream will succeed Chris Wallace on ‘Fox News Sunday’
