Chris Wallace, Winner of the 2017 ICFJ Founders Award for Excellence in Journalism
During more than four decades as a journalist at Fox, NBC and ABC, Wallace has applied his unbiased, piercing approach to interviews, whether moderating primary and general presidential debates, interviewing Democratic or Republican presidents, or leading the charge on groundbreaking investigations. Last year, he became the first Fox News host to moderate a presidential debate, earning high praise for keeping both candidates focused on policy issues.
Wallace decided to become a journalist after working as an intern for Walter Cronkite during the 1964 Democratic and Republican conventions while still a high school student. His first journalism job was as a reporter for The Boston Globe where he worked for Editor Tom Winship, a founder of ICFJ. Wallace attended Harvard College.
