Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace is a Sunday morning news/talk show on the Fox Broadcasting Company, hosted by Chris Wallace. The show began on April 28, 1996, five and a half months prior to the launch of Fox News Channel, and is the only regularly scheduled news program on the network. The program is broadcast on the Fox network at 9:00 a.m. ET (although many stations broadcast it later) and is re-broadcast Sunday afternoon on Fox News Channel at 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. ET (in the slot typically occupied by Special Report with Bret Baier on the weekdays). Since August 2008, the show has been produced in high definition.
The first minute or so of the broadcast runs down the day's headlines (since Fox, unlike its competitors, does not have a full morning show to lead into Fox News Sunday). For the rest of the first half of the show, Wallace interviews newsmakers from the prior week.
During the second half of the show, Wallace introduces a panel of four pundits to speak about the political impact of the news. Regular members of the panel include Brit Hume, Weekly Standard editor William Kristol, National Public Radio correspondent Mara Liasson and terminated correspondent Juan Williams; also Stephen F. Hayes & Fred Barnes of the Weekly Standard, Associated Press White House reporter Jennifer Loven, Columnists Charles Krauthammer, Fortune Washington bureau chief Nina Easton, Fox News Washington deputy managing editor Bill Sammon, former state department official Liz Cheney, former Clinton chief of staff John Podesta, former White house Press secretary Dana Perino, New York Post columnist Kirsten Powers, radio host Laura Ingraham, Roll Call columnist Mort Kondracke, Washington Examiner reporter Byron York, and Washington Post reporter Ceci Connelly also appear on the panel on a limited basis.
Originally hosted through 2003 by the late Tony Snow, who later became White House Press Secretary, the program celebrated its tenth anniversary in April 2006.
The program is now being rebroadcast on a small but growing number of radio affiliates, mostly owned by Clear Channel Communications, which is the largest station group running the division's Fox News Radio newscasts.
