Fox News said Monday it has “agreed to part ways” with its popular primetime anchor Tucker Carlson.

The new show will be helmed by a rotating group of Fox News personalities until a new host is named.

“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,” the network said in a statement Monday.

Carlson joined Fox News as a contributor in 2009. From 2012 to 2016, he served as a co-host of the weekend show “Fox & Friends Weekend.”

Last year, “Tucker Carlson Tonight” averaged 3.32 million viewers, nabbing the biggest audience in cable news among viewers ages 25 to 54, a coveted demographic among advertisers.

The announcement comes days after Fox News’ parent company settled Dominion Voting Systems’ defamation lawsuit for $787.5 million.

Dominion’s lawsuit had accused Fox News of airing false election claims and conspiracy theories in the wake of the 2020 presidential election.
