Perhaps the world’s most famous news host and political commentator Tucker Carlson is leaving Fox News.
The announcement from Fox is short and no final program of Tucker Carlson Tonight will be broadcast.
“FOX News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part ways. We thank him for his service to the network as a host and prior to that as a contributor.
Mr. Carlson’s last program was Friday April 21st. Fox News Tonight will air live at 8 PM/ET starting this evening as an interim show helmed by rotating FOX News personalities until a new host is named.”
This was stated in a press release published early Monday afternoon Swedish time. Carlson, who has been with the channel since 2009, has not yet commented on the matter.
The announcement comes shortly after Fox and vote counting company Dominion reached a settlement in a high-profile lawsuit that followed the exposure of suspected voter fraud in the 2020 US presidential election.
Tucker Carlson is one of America’s most respected media personalities and has a long history of challenging key narratives in the media landscape. This has earned him great respect, especially among the American public, while at the same time he has become disliked by left-liberal actors.
Tucker was the cable host who most:
* Opposed US proxy war in Ukraine;
* Denounced CIA, FBI and DHS for its systemic lies and corruption;
* Devoted himself to a pardon for Julian Assange;
* Objected to regime change efforts in Cuba;
* Criticized Trump Admin’s militarism. pic.twitter.com/PEduNzOyW6
