Tucker Carlson and Fox News part ways

The stunning announcement came days after the network settled a high-stakes defamation lawsuit with Dominion Voting Systems.

Excerpt from NBC News:

Fox News said Monday it is parting ways with firebrand anchor Tucker Carlson, the network’s most popular prime-time host and a leading voice in the modern conservative movement.

The network announced the stunning news days after it agreed to pay nearly $800 million to Dominion Voting Systems to avert a high-stakes defamation trial that had cast a shadow over the future of the network.

“FOX News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part ways,” the company said in a short news release. “Mr. Carlson’s last program was Friday April 21st.”

Fox News did not specify why Carlson is leaving the network, and a spokeswoman did not immediately respond to an email from NBC News. The network’s statement did not include any comment from Carlson.

“Tucker Carlson Tonight,” a cornerstone of the Fox News programming lineup since 2016, was as one of the most-watched cable news shows, outpacing rivals at CNN and MSNBC.
