The National Marine Manufacturers Association has announced Chris Wallace, award-winning veteran journalist and host of FOX News Sunday, will keynote the 2018 American Boating Congress Friday, May 11 during ABC’s General Session.
The title of this year’s keynote address is “America Under President Trump: A View from Washington One Year Later.”
With substance, fairness and gravitas, Wallace’s keynote will captivate audiences with seasoned insights on current events and political affairs, including the evolving role of the media and influence of technology on the presidency, what America will look like under the 45th president, and what audiences can expect during his administration.
The host of FOX News Sunday, Wallace has established himself as a battled-tested media presence, an incisive, thoughtful interviewer, and a venerable authority on presidential history and election politics.
Over his decades-long journalism career, he reported from the ABC News desk as a senior correspondent for Primetime and 20/20, and as an anchor on the longest running show on television, NBC News' Meet the Press.
The author of the best-seller, Character: Profiles in Presidential Courage, Wallace has won every major broadcast news award, including three Emmys, the Peabody Award and the Dupont-Columbia Silver Baton Award.
In 2016, Wallace earned praise from fellow journalists and political operatives on both sides of the aisle for his sterling performance moderating the final presidential debate between Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump.
ABC 2018 will provide the industry a unique opportunity to come together and meet with elected officials, hear from a host of influential speakers, take part in a series of new workshops and seminars, and attend Hill visits to meet with key policy makers.
