Tucker’s Final On-Air Words Hint He Had No Idea What Was Coming

Published on

Tucker Carlson gave no indication that this would be the last edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to broadcast on Fox News as he signed off Friday night.

Carlson was consuming pizza delivered by Tyler Morell, who had recently assisted Pennsylvania police in capturing an escaping suspect.

After a few nibbles, the Fox News host bid his routine farewell to millions of viewers.

“That’s it for us for the week. We’ll be back,” he said.

“We’ll be back on Monday,” Carlson said moments later. “In the meantime, have the best weekend with the ones that you love, and we’ll see you then.”

However, Fox News announced on Monday that Carlson would not be returning.

“Fox News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part ways. We thank him for his service to the network as a host and prior to that as a contributor,” the network said in a statement emailed to The Western Journal.

“Mr. Carlson’s last program was Friday April 21st. Fox News Tonight will air live at 8 PM/ET starting this evening as an interim show helmed by rotating Fox News personalities until a new host is named,” the statement said.

According to The Hill, on Friday, after speaking at a Heritage Foundation event, Carlson revealed he previously worked as a copy editor for the conservative organization’s quarterly review.

“If things go south for Fox News, there’s always a job for you here,” Heritage Foundation President Kevin Roberts said.

“You’ve saved me before,” Carlson said.

The news of his departure from the network set Twitter abuzz.

The Hill noted in an article about Carlson’s departure that it occurred after Fox News settled a lawsuit with Dominion Voting Systems for $787,500,000. Dominion alleged that the network’s claims of manipulated voting machines in the 2020 election defamed it.
