Grifter Chris Wallace Headed to HBO Max After CNN+ Collapses

Chris Wallace’s show is reportedly headed to HBO Max after CNN+ collapsed.

After investing $300 million, CNN+ shut down within 3 weeks of its launch date.

Mediaite reported:

Chris Wallace’s now-defunct CNN+ interview show, Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace, will head over to HBO Max, according to a Thursday report from Puck’s Dylan Byers.

The fate of CNN+ talent has been a topic of much speculation in the media world after the shock announcement that CNN+ would fold after a whopping $300 million-plus investment and less than a month of streaming.

Much of the reporting and opining regarding CNN’s future has focused on Chris Licht, who officially replaced Jeff Zucker as the head of the network on Monday. While Licht said in a memo his first day on the job was “anti-climatic,” he takes over the network at a critical moment, both for CNN and the cable news as ratings are down and the media landscape continues to shift more and more online. CNN+, which was shut down as a cost-saving move related to the merger that created Warner Bros. Discovery, was originally heralded as the vehicle which would help modernize CNN and allow the network to reach a larger online audience.
