After Fox News announced on Monday it had parted ways with primetime host Tucker Carlson, numerous people took to social media to announce they would stop watching the cable news network and cancel their subscriptions to its streaming service Fox Nation.
Carlson, who had led a popular primetime show on the network called “Tucker Carlson Tonight” since 2016, had been a fixture on the news channel even before then. Carlson’s conservative news commentary program had been one of the network’s most successful shows and regularly garnered more than 3 million viewers per episode.
In addition to his primetime news show, Carlson has also been a key figure on the Fox Nation streaming service, hosting several original programs and an interview show called “Tucker Carlson Today.” Carlson’s Fox Nation program had hosted numerous celebrity guests, including Tesla and Twitter owner Elon Musk, actor Russell Brand, “Shark Tank” host Kevin O’Leary, and champion boxer Mike Tyson.
