This past weekend marked the 25th anniversary of “Fox News Sunday,” which is a marquee program for the news division of Fox and has turned Chris Wallace into a star in the media world.

Wallace took over the anchor chair after the late Tony Snow departed in 2003, and during his time, the 73-year-old has had several interviews.

During his nearly 20-year run as the anchor, Wallace has spoken to lawmakers from both parties, and international figures have earned the Fox News anchor praise. Perhaps the highlight of Wallace’s tenure comes in 2018 when he won an Emmy Award for his interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“At 25 years, we’re still the new kid on the block of Sunday shows. And that’s the way we view ourselves-working hard every week to book the best guests and make the most news,” Chris Wallace said to The Hill.

“For me personally, it has been the most satisfying job of my half-century in journalism. Whether it’s big guests like Putin and Macron, or sitting down with every President since Bush 41, or the leaders of government, business, and culture we speak to each week-it’s an honor and a pleasure to share interesting, probing conversations with our viewers.”

Ahead of the show celebrating its 25th anniversary Fox News Media president and executive editor Jay Wallace stated in a memo his appreciation on what the Fox News Sunday” team has helped accomplished. Furthermore, he went to single out Wallace by saying that the veteran anchor has turned the morning show into a must-see program.

Mark Levin couldn’t hide his frustration with both the Department of Justice and what he perceived as an early exit from Tuesday’s episode of Hannity.

Levin, who was appearing on the Fox News show for a second consecutive day to discuss the FBI’s raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate, was deep into a monologue when he heard the universal cue to wrap up.

“They are in search to try and destroy Trump!”, Levin shouted. They conducted a criminal investigation! They failed! They have an investigation in New York with the attorney general that’s gonna to fail! They have a Democrat…”

As Levin got to that point, music began to wrap up the segment and head to a commercial break.

While waving his hands in frustration, Levin said, “Oh Christ, you’re cutting me off early. I’m done.”

Hannity insisted Levin finish his point, but after a back and forth that saw Levin say “no, I’m done”, the segment concluded.
