CNN puts Chris Wallace on the schedule

“Who’s Talking,” which was one of several horribly named shows on CNN+, featured Wallace interviewing a newsmaker, celebrity or other people of interest and has been compared to the former CNN show “Larry King Live.”
The show is expected to follow largely the same format.
CNN will air the show live on its linear feed at 7 p.m. eastern and presumably will make it available on HBO Max at a later time to avoid conflicting with its agreements with pay TV providers.
The same day Wallace’s new timeslot was announced, Fox announced who would replace him on “Fox News Sunday.”
Wallace joined CNN after departing Fox’s conservative commentary channel in late 2021.
He called working at the network “unsustainable” after the network continued to help push misinformation about the 2020 election and Jan. 6 insurrection and revealed he’d been looking for other opportunities for some time.
7 p.m. Sunday will put Wallace up against CBS’s venerable “60 Minutes.” It will also go against “Sunday Night in America With Trey Gowdy” on Wallace’s former cable channel.
