Guests: Episodes with Tucker Carlson

Tucker Carlson, born in 1969 in San Francisco, California, is an American conservative pundit who hosted “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Fox News from 2016 to 2023 and had a significant impact on American Republican politics, including an influential relationship with former President Donald Trump.

Carlson’s show was the highest-rated cable news program in the 25 to 54 age demographic, although it faced a decline in ratings following his exit. While popular among viewers, his controversial comments on immigrants, the Black Lives Matter movement, and COVID-19 led some advertisers to sever ties with the program.

In terms of policy support, Carlson endorsed many of Trump’s positions such as the immigration ban from majority-Muslim countries, building a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, and climate change denial.

In April 2023, Carlson left Fox News abruptly, less than a week after Fox Corp settled a $787.5 million lawsuit with Dominion Voting Systems to avoid a defamation trial. The network offered no explanation for Carlson’s departure, although he had been expected to testify in the Dominion trial.

Tucker Carlson is set to appear on the Joe Rogan #2138 episode on 19th of April 2024.
