Chris Wallace has signed a new multi-year deal to remain at Fox News, Deadline Hollywood reports.

Wallace has been at Fox News Channel since 2003, and currently hosts the Sunday morning news program "Fox News Sunday," which is broadcast on Fox's broadcast network and replayed throughout the day on Fox News Channel. He also provides commentary for other programs throughout the week on FNC.

Wallace has worked for NBC and ABC News before joining Fox. He started his career at age 16, working as a gofer for CBS legend Walter Cronkite at the 1964 Republican National Convention.

During his stint at NBC, he was chief White House correspondent and anchored the weekend edition of "NBC Nightly News" and "Meet the Press." At ABC, he was a senior correspondent for "Primetime Thursday" and substitute anchor on "Nightline."

"Chris is a renowned journalist whose hard-hitting interviews and lifetime of dedication to the news have established him as one of the best in the industry," Fox News Channel Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes said in a press release. "We are pleased he will continue his exceptional work on Fox News for years to come."

"It is the high point of my career to work at Fox News," Wallace said. "I am delighted and grateful for the opportunity Roger Ailes has given me, and look forward to many more years of bringing interesting guests and provocative conversations to our audience."
