Fox News Channel anchor Chris Wallace is the winner of the National Press Foundation’s Sol Taishoff Award for Broadcast Journalism.
Wallace accepted the award at the NPF’s annual dinner last night in Washington, DC. In his speech, he named his father Mike Wallace, his stepfather Bill Leonard, and Fox News CEO Roger Ailes as the greatest influences on his journalism career, according to Broadcasting & Cable.
Wallace also spoke with Boston.com about the honor. “’60 Minutes’ has won it — and Ted Koppel, Charlie Gibson, Brit Hume,” he said. “Quite frankly, some of the people I admire most in the business. To be invited to stand with those heavyweights means a lot. It really means a lot to me.”
