(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Swirling rumors have suggested that the neoconservative Chris Wallace may replace the embattled and disgraced Chris Cuomo in his former prime time CNN spot, the Daily Wire reported.
CNN has undergone much turmoil in recent months due to tanking ratings, internal scandals, and a bizarre attachment to the Jan. 6 rally.
Former President Jeff Zucker departed alongside Chris Cuomo, both in the wake of their own sexual misconduct scandals.
Wallace left Fox over a year ago after a long stint, transferring at the time to CNN+, the network’s subscription-based streaming service.
“I am thrilled to join CNN+. After decades in broadcast and cable news, I am excited to explore the world of streaming,” Wallace said at the time.
“I look forward to the new freedom and flexibility streaming affords in interviewing major figures across the news landscape—and finding new ways to tell stories. As I embark on this adventure, I am honored and delighted to join Jeff Zucker and his great team. I can’t wait to get started.”
Now rumors abound that he will take over Cuomo’s old prime time post.
At the time he interrupted Trump without cessation, ridiculing the President in favor of his old and weak challenger.
Conservative radio host Gerry Callahan mocked Wallace soon after, claiming that CNN would be a much better fit.
“Maybe he can slide into the 9 pm slot at CNN and talk endlessly about his two favorite subjects: white supremacy and global warming,” Callahan said.
“Good riddance to this fraud.”
Brian Williams has been suggested as another potential replacement for Cuomo.
