Tucker Carlson releases first video since Fox News departure

April 27, 2023

Tucker Carlson released his first video since parting ways with Fox News on Monday.

Carlson didn't directly address the network but instead thanked viewers and suggested he will soon broadcast elsewhere.

Carlson's words

"One of the first things you realize when you step outside the noise for a few days is how many genuinely nice people there are in this country โ€” kind and decent people, people who really care about what's true, and a bunch of hilarious people, a lot of those. It's got to be the majority of the population, even now. So that's heartening," he said.

"The other thing you notice when you take a little time off is how unbelievably stupid most of the debates you see on television are," he continued. "They're completely irrelevant. They mean nothing. In five years, we won't even remember that we have them."

Carlson's future

Carlson's future plans are uncertain but a number of conservative outlets are already reaching out to connect.

โ€œIt would be great if we could get Tucker! I might give him around $25 million. And he would be well worth that!โ€ OANN founder and CEO Robert Herring Sr. said.

Glenn Beck, who left Fox News in 2011, also invited Carlson to join his network The Blaze.

โ€œWe would love to have you here. You wonโ€™t miss a beat. And together, the two of us will tear it up. Just tear it up,โ€ Beck said.

Video viewed 55 million times

Carlson's video has already been viewed over 55 million times, showing the continued popularity behind the former Fox News network's top personality.

The parting also follows the announcement last week that Dan Bongino was parting ways. Both changes came shortly after Fox settled with Dominion Voting Systems over a lawsuit about the 2020 presidential election results.

Carlson will likely be broadcasting again soon but for now, he focused on thanking supporters and only hinting at what's next as he develops plans for the next chapter in his career as a top conservative media figure.
