Considering Carlson’s popularity for the network, it’s a stunning development to see his departure from Fox News. The network is saying they parted ways, but there are rumors and unconfirmed reports that Carlson’s departure could be tied to the Dominion settlement and a harassment lawsuit against the host.
Carlson started hosting Tucker Carlson Tonight in 2016. The 53-year-old rose to the top of the ratings as his show has been the number-one most-watched program on cable news for almost four years.
Fox News has not announced a permanent replacement for Carlson, who broadcasted during the 8 p.m. block of television.

With Carlson out at Fox News, where will he wind up?
BetOnline lists Rumble and OANN as the favorites to land Carlson, with the odds at +175. Rumble is a video-hosting platform home to Truth Social, the social media service created by former president Donald Trump. OANN (One America News Network) is a far-right cable news channel that serves as Fox News’s rival. Like Rumble, the network champions Trump and the pro-Trump movement.
Breitbart (+450) and Newsmax (+500) are two conservative media companies that would be interested in Carlson’s services. Streaming services like Netflix (+1600) and Amazon Prime (+2000) are longshots but could bring in Carlson to attract a new audience.
