Fox News said Monday it has “agreed to part ways” with its popular primetime anchor Tucker Carlson.
Carlson, who hosted “Tucker Carlson Tonight” at 8 p.m. weeknights, broadcast his final show on April 21, Fox News said.
The company noted that “Fox News Tonight” will replace Carlson’s show and air live on an interim basis.

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.
