Fox News Sunday host and award-winning journalist Chris Wallace will keynote the 2018 American Boating Congress on May 11 during the general session.

The title of the address is, “America Under President Trump: A View from Washington One Year Later,” according to the National Marine Manufacturers Association.

Wallace is known for providing fair insights on current events and political affairs.

He reports on the evolving role of the media, the influence of technology on the presidency, what America will look like under the 45th president, and what audiences can expect during his administration.

Over his career, he has 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.

He authored the best-seller, “Character: Profiles in Presidential Courage,” and 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 journalists and political operatives on both sides of the aisle for his performance moderating the final presidential debate.

ABC will be held May 9-11 in Washington D.C. Early bird registration ends March 5.
