Chris Wallace, formerly of Fox News Channel, has made some appearances on the television network, including on primary coverage Tuesday night. CNN starting this fall, the network said Wednesday in announcing a new home for the best-known personality from the CNN+ streaming service. Wallace will host a Sunday night interview show.

Chris Licht, the new CNN Worldwide chairman, also told advertisers at a Manhattan presentation. That CNN was “reimagining” its weekday morning show with the intent of being a “disruptor” in the space. In contrast to the “extremes” dominating cable television news. Licht said that at CNN, “We aspire to be a beacon for the kind of journalism. It is essential to democracy.”
CNN has been telegraphing a renewed emphasis on news, with less commentary, since the forced departure of former chief Jeff Zucker this past winter and the corporate ownership change.
Actor Eva Longoria, who had also signed up for the streaming service, will do a series for CNN where she travels to Mexico to sample the cuisine and culture. “Eva Longoria: Searching for Mexico” is by the same production team that makes “Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy” for the network.
Licht’s point was driven home by his boss David Zaslav, Warner Bros. Discovery chairman, at the same presentation. He contrasted CNN with “advocacy” news networks.
“We at CNN intend to advocate for journalism first, to advocate for news and truth,” Zaslav said.
