Breaking Report: Tucker Carlson’s Permanent Replacement Revealed in Major Fox News Shakeup

Published on

According to the Drudge Report, Fox News has chosen Sean Hannity to replace Tucker Carlson in the coveted 8 p.m. time slot.

Wednesday’s leading headline on the outlet’s website announced the news: “HANNITY FOXNEWS SHOWCASE; MOVES TO 8 PM.”

In addition to this announcement, a subheading provided a few questionable details. The DRUDGE REPORT has learned that FOXNEWS is preparing to announce an ambitious new primetime schedule in which every hour of primetime will be different.

It quoted a “top source” as saying, “It’s our boldest and most fearless line-up ever.”

According to a subheadline, prominent Fox News personalities Jesse Watters and Greg Gutfeld will receive their own primetime programs.

The linked Mediaite article, however, quoted a Fox News representative as denying the report.

“No decision has been made on a new primetime line-up and there are multiple scenarios under consideration,” the spokesperson said.

The April firing of Carlson resulted in a significant decline in Fox’s viewership.

Almost immediately, the average number of viewers in the 8 p.m. time slot formerly occupied by “Tucker Carlson Tonight” fell from 3 million to 1.48 million.

According to Mediaite, many advertisers have since returned to the 8 p.m. time slot after leaving following the decision.

Since 1996, when he began co-hosting “Hannity and Colmes” with Alan Colmes, a liberal, Hannity has been a staple on Fox News. Colmes departed in 2009, leaving Hannity to perform alone.

According to Mediaite, Hannity surpassed Larry King’s previous record of 25 years, six months, and fifteen days as the longest-running presenter of a prime-time cable news program.

As of Wednesday at noon, Carlson had not commented on his Twitter account or personal website.

The immensely popular host declared his intention to launch a new show on Twitter that would be modeled after his successful Fox News program.

“There aren’t many platforms left that allow free speech,” Carlson said in a video posted to Twitter. “The last big one remaining in the world, the only one is Twitter, where we are now.”

However, just days later, Twitter CEO Elon Musk announced that he had chosen Linda Yaccarino, a former NBC Universal advertising executive, to take over the company’s daily operations.

Many Tweeted their disapproval of her selection, stating that she is unlikely to enable free speech on the platform.

Musk, however, tried to reassure users. “I hear your concerns, but don’t judge too early,” he said in one tweet.

“I am adamant about defending free speech, even if it means losing money,” he said.
