The report is founded on “people familiar with the matter” and depicts the idea as being in the planning phase, where funding is being sought to further its development.
The Journal reported that Neil Patel, who co-founded The Daily Caller with Carlson, will join Carlson in the venture.
According to the report, as the search for the millions of dollars required to launch the company begins, financiers, attorneys, and media strategists have been recruited to join the team transforming the concept into a company.
A team from Twitter has also been contacted, according to the report.
According to the Journal, Twitter CEO Linda Yaccarino and Carlson producer Justin Wells recently met.
According to the claim, Twitter representatives have discussed with the former Fox News host the possibility of viewing Twitter videos on television.

According to the report, the company would offer a combination of free and subscription-based content, similar to what Tucker Carlson posts on Twitter.
The Journal reported that Carlson would be one of several presenters providing content.
