FOX News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace is profiled in this week’s Broadcasting & Cable.

Of former ABC News president Roone Arledge: “[Roone] understood why people watch TV and what attracts an audience. It’s one of the things he shares with another great boss I’ve had, [Fox News Chairman] Roger Ailes.”

Of his move to cable: “It struck me as almost silly to work at a news organization that wasn’t on the air most of the time.”

Sam Donaldson, praising his former competitor: “If there had never been a Mike Wallace, we would just be looking at Chris as one of the premier interviewers.”
