Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace? Moves From CNN Exclusively to Max

By A.J. Katz 

Season four of the CNN series Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace? can be seen exclusively on Warner Bros. Discovery’s Max streaming service, and will not air on CNN’s linear network.

New episodes will become available to stream on CNN Max, the streaming news vertical within Max. Episodes will be released on Fridays, beginning Sept. 29.

The most recent season of Wallace’s sit-down interview series aired Fridays at 10 p.m. on CNN. Seasons one and two aired Sundays at 7 p.m. on CNN and new episodes were released on the platform previously known as HBO Max the Friday before.


This change comes as Abby Philip is poised to take over CNN’s weekday 10 p.m. timeslot on a permanent basis as the host of CNN NewsNight with Abby Philip.

That said, Wallace isn’t leaving CNN. The network announced last month that he’ll get his own political talk panel program. Indeed, The Chris Wallace Show will debut this fall and air Saturdays live at 10 a.m. ET on CNN.

“Featuring sharp commentary and high-energy discussions, the weekly program will make sense of breaking news, the latest developments in the 2024 presidential race, and set the agenda for what’s next,” CNN said in a statement.

Wallace added, “It’s been exciting to bring in such a wide range of guests for thought-provoking conversations throughout our first three seasons, and our fourth will be no different.

I’m also looking forward to bringing The Chris Wallace Show to CNN, featuring some of the most incisive commentators and columnists. As we head into yet another pivotal election cycle, nothing is off-limits as we tackle the most important issues facing the country.”

Chris Wallace has spent more than 50 years in broadcasting. He joined CNN in January 2022 as an anchor for CNN+ after an 18-year run at Fox News, where he served as moderator for Fox News Sunday. A presidential debate moderator, Wallace has earned three Emmy Awards, the duPont-Columbia Silver Baton, the Peabody Award and the Sol Taishoff Award for Broadcast Journalism, which was awarded to him by the National Press Foundation. He was honored with the 2020 Poynter Medal for Lifetime Achievement in Journalism.
