(NewsNation) — Conservative political commentator Tucker Carlson is leaving Fox News in the wake of the Dominion defamation lawsuit against the news outlet.
“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,” Fox News confirmed in a statement.
“Mr. Carlson’s last program was Friday April 21st. 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.”
Carlson was the host of Fox’s flagship primetime cable news program “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
