OverviewEdit

The program began on April 28, 1996, 5½ half months prior to the launch of the network's sister cable news network Fox News. It airs live at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time (although many Fox stations broadcast it at a later time slot) and is subsequently rebroadcast Sunday afternoons on Fox News at 2:00 and 6:00 p.m. ET (the latter airing in the slot typically occupied by Special Report with Bret Baier on weekdays).

The show was hosted by Tony Snow until 2003, when he left to become White House Press Secretary under President George W. Bush). It has been hosted by Chris Wallace since 2003.

An audio-only broadcast of the program is also carried on a number of radio stations. Most of these stations are owned by iHeartMedia (the former Clear Channel Communications), the largest radio station group that runs the division's Fox News Radio newscasts, along with WCSP-FM (C-SPAN Radio) in the Washington area and over the Internet, as part of its weekly audio airings of the major Sunday morning talk shows. In August 2008, Fox News Sunday began to be produced in high definition.[1]

FormatEdit

The first minute or so of the broadcast runs down the day's headlines, since Fox, unlike the Big Three television networks, does not have a conventional national morning news program that leads into Fox News Sunday, though a limited amount of Fox's affiliates have local news programs leading into it. For the rest of the first half of the show, Wallace interviews news makers from the prior week.

During the second half of the show, Wallace introduces a panel of four pundits to speak about the political impact of the news. Regular members of the panel include Brit Hume, National Public Radio correspondent Mara Liasson and the Hill columnist Juan Williams; Stephen F. Hayes and Fred Barnes of the Weekly Standard, Associated Press White House reporter Julie Pace, columnists Charles Krauthammer and George Will, Fortune Washington bureau chief Nina Easton, Fox News Washington deputy managing editor Bill Sammon, former state department official Liz Cheney, former Clinton chief of staff John Podesta, former White House Press Secretary Dana Perino, New York Post columnist Kirsten Powers, radio host Laura Ingraham, Roll Call columnist Mort Kondracke, Washington Examiner reporter Byron York and Washington Post reporter Ceci Connelly also appear on the panel on a limited basis.
