Edward R. Murrow Forum on Issues in Journalism: Chris Wallace
Wednesday, April 8 | 12 PM | LL008, Barnum Hall
Join Tisch College for a conversation with Chris Wallace, the featured speaker for the 14th Annual Edward R. Murrow Forum on Issues in Journalism. A prominent political commentator and a highly respected journalist, Chris Wallace has been in the broadcasting industry for over 50 years and has worked at most of the major networks. He is currently the anchor of FOX News Sunday, prior to which Wallace was a senior correspondent for “Primetime Thursday” and substitute for “Nightline” at ABC News, covered several presidential elections at NBC News as the network’s chief White House correspondent, and was a print reporter at the Boston Globe. In 2015, Wallace—along with Megyn Kelly and Bret Baier—moderated the first Republican presidential debate, which still ranks as the highest-rated non-sports telecast ever, according to Nielsen Media Research. He later moderated the third general election presidential debate in 2016 – a first for a FOX News journalist. Wallace is the recipient of three Emmy Awards and a Peabody Award for his reporting.

This event is sponsored by Tisch College’s Distinguished Speaker Series with support from the Provost’s Office, the Film & Media Studies Program, the Institute for Global Leadership, and the Murrow Center for a Digital World at the Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy.
