    Fox News Announces Next Replacement for Tucker Carlson

    Published on

    Next week, popular figure Kayleigh McEnany will host the 8 p.m. ET hour on Fox News.

    McEnany, who served as White House press secretary under President Donald Trump before joining Fox News, will host the program, which is presently titled “Fox News Tonight” following Tucker Carlson’s departure from the network.

    Fox News announced last week that it had “parted ways” with Carlson. Prior to reaching a final decision on Carlson’s replacement, Fox News stated it would rotate hosts.

    “Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade helmed the show in the first week after Carlson was abruptly shown the door. Lawrence Jones, the host of the weekend program Cross Country, took over for the second week. McEnany co-hosts Fox’s midday opinion program Outnumbered, which often boasts better ratings than network talk show competition, including GMA3 and Today w/ Hoda & Jenna,” Mediaite reported.

    Concerning the potential replacement for Carlson’s time period on the network, rumors abound.

    Who Will Replace Tucker Carlson at Fox News? ” was the title of a report by Mediaite. Here Are Mediaite’s Top Picks,” in which staff members compiled a roster of prospective hosts who could fill Carlson’s coveted 8 PM time slot.

    In its report, Mediaite suggested that Fox News could simply switch Watters, Ingraham, and Hannity to the 8 p.m. time slot and tryout a new host in a later time slot. Thus, a more experienced host would merely assume Carlson’s position on the network.

    In the event that Fox News retains the primetime hosts in their current time slots, Mediaite has suggested the following six candidates to replace Tucker Carlson:

    Greg Gutfeld — who hosts “The Five” and his late-night comedy show “Gutfeld!”

    Tulsi Gabbard — a former Democratic lawmaker and 2020 presidential candidate

    Kayleigh McEnany — former press secretary in the Trump administration

    Brian Kilmeade — a longtime host and figure at Fox News

    Pete Hegseth — a co-host and contributor at Fox News

    Jesse Watters — who hosts “The Five” and his own primetime show

    Time will tell what Fox News decides to do, but the dismissal of Tucker Carlson sparked a social media firestorm this week.

    On Monday, Carlson received a phone call from CEO Suzanne Scott informing him that he had been dismissed. According to reports, Carlson was “blindsided” by the news.

    According to an Independent report, Carlson was fired as he was negotiating a new contract that would have kept him at the network through 2029.

    Now, a former Fox News host believes he understands why Carlson was fired.

    During an interview with News Nation’s Chris Cuomo, former Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly argued that he believes Tucker Carlson was fired because the network is facing a slew of lawsuits related to the 2020 presidential election.

    Fox News recently settled a lawsuit with Dominion for a staggering $787 million. Abby Grossberg, a former Fox News booker, has also filed a lawsuit against the network.

    “Because the pending litigation was harpooned this morning. Carlson didn’t know. It just happened. And that’s the nature of television news, the most wicked industry in the United States of America,” O’Reilly said.

    “Tucker Carlson took over from me. For the first three years, his ratings were soft. He lost about a million, maybe a little bit more of my audience, and then in 2020 he took a hard right turn,” O’Reilly said. “Carlson basically programmed for a very hard right audience and his numbers came up.” CONTINUE READING…
