According to reports, Fox News has fired every remaining staff member associated with “Tucker Carlson Tonight” three months after the network abruptly dismissed the show’s former presenter.
Former Fox News contributor Chadwick Moore first tweeted the news on Monday morning.
Carlson’s biographer wrote, “EXCLUSIVE: Sources have told me Fox News has just terminated the rest of @TuckerCarlson’s former staff.”
He concluded, “They want the nine remaining employees to continue working until mid-July.”

The Daily Caller, which was co-founded by Carlson, reported later that the firings were confirmed and that it had also received comment from a former network employee.
An ex-Fox News producer who spoke off-the-record to the news organization described the decision as “shockingly callous.”
This person added, “Some of the producers fired have been at Fox for well over a decade.”
There was no cited cause for the reported terminations.
A week ago, it was reported that a former Carlson producer was responsible for a network chyron that referred to President Joe Biden as a “wannabe dictator.”
As Biden spoke, the graphic on the network read, “WANNABE DICTATOR SPEAKS AT THE WHITE HOUSE AFTER HAVING HIS POLITICAL RIVAL ARRESTED.”
