NEW YORK — FOX News Channel (FNC) will debut a new live, one-hour program at 7 p.m. entitled Tucker Carlson Tonight on Monday, November 14th. With this new weekday evening role, host Tucker Carlson will end his duties as co-host of FOX & Friends Weekend and a rotating personality will substitute until a permanent replacement is named.
Tucker Carlson Tonight will feature analysis and spirited debates with guests from across the political and cultural spectrum. Carlson will bring his signature style to tackle issues largely uncovered by the media in every corner of the United States, challenging political correctness with a “Campus Craziness” segment and tackling media bias and outrage during “Tucker’s TwitterStorm.” Additionally, viewers will have the chance to interact with Carlson live throughout the hour using the hashtag #Tucker across all social media platforms.
Carlson joined FNC in 2009 as a political contributor and was named co-host of FOX & Friends Weekend in 2012. He also played an integral role in 2016 election coverage, most recently serving as a key contributor on election night. In 2010, he founded The Daily Caller, a 24-hour news site featuring original reporting, commentary and breaking news. Carlson will remain a passive owner of The Daily Caller, but will no longer serve as the website’s editor-in-chief.
Prior to joining FNC, Carlson hosted the political program Tucker on MSNBC from 2005 through 2008 and spent five years at CNN co-hosting The Spin Room and later Crossfire. He began his career at Policy Review, a national conservative journal, and also worked at the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette and The Weekly Standard.
