Known for his outspokenness, Carlson holds conservative views. The style in which the journalist presented his views made his primetime show “Tucker Carlson Tonight” the highest-rated news programme on the most watched cable network in the US.

His programme averaged 3.32 million viewers. In 2021, Time dubbed him “the most powerful conservative in America”.

“FOX News Media and Tucker Carlson decided to go their separate ways. We thank him for his work on the channel as an anchor,” the company said in a statement on its website.

It also notes that Carlson last aired on April 21. The reason for Carlson’s departure from the channel and who will replace the journalist on the air has not yet been disclosed.

Bloomberg estimates that firing broadcaster Tucker Carlson cost Fox News $507 million.
