(NewsBroadcast.com) – For over 50 years, Chris Wallace has delivered clear, fact-based reporting to Americans and hard-hitting interviews of Washington DC’s top politicians. He has won major broadcasting awards including three Emmys, the Peabody Award, and he just added one more to the list. This weekend, the Panetta Institute for Public Policy celebrated the current Fox News host alongside other award recipients.
On Saturday, November 6, The Panetta Institute held a gala in Pebble Beach, California to celebrate Jefferson-Lincoln Award winners US Representatives Liz Cheney (R-WY) and James Clyburn (D-SC) and Chris Wallace. The institute highlighted how those individuals have “distinguished themselves by their proven dedication to the most important principles of our democracy.”
Fox News Sunday celebrated its host’s accomplishment by sharing his speech on Twitter:

Over the course of his career, Wallace worked at NBC, ABC, Fox News. He has sat across from incredibly powerful politicians and asked them pressing questions about their actions, words, and policies to try and keep them honest. From moderating the first 2020 presidential debate to covering just about every political event in US politics for decades, Americans across the nation know Wallace for his clear, hard-hitting broadcasting, no matter the subject matter or which party is involved in a particular situation. Hopefully, he will continue to do this and inspire other journalists to follow in his footsteps.
