Fox News announced that it agreed to “part ways” with Carlson on Monday, April 24. Carlson’s last show was filmed on April 21, meaning he will have no official sign-off show.
Carlson dominated cable news ratings during his tenure, ranking number one the last few years with nearly 3 million viewers nightly. Carlson was the host of Tucker Carlson Tonight since 2016.
At CNN, Lemon announced that he was terminated by the network shortly after the Carlson news broke. Lemon said that no one at CNN contacted him directly about the termination.
