Fox News abruptly announced the departure of opinion anchor and pundit Tucker Carlson, who presented the popular Tucker Carlson Tonight.

The separation was unexpected on Monday morning. It's unclear why Fox News and Carlson decided to part ways.

“FOX News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part ways,” the press release read. “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 21,” the company said. “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.”

Tucker Carlson Tonight eclipsed Hannity as the highest-rated primetime cable show in April 2020, with an average audience of 4.56 million people.

The show had an average audience of 4.33 million people in the second quarter of 2020. That was the highest number of viewers ever for a cable news program.

Per Mediaite in 2022, “Carlson [was] the number-one watched host among Democrats in the key 25-54 age demographic – across all networks” in the month of October.
