The sudden announcement has left fans dumbfounded.
UPDATE: L.A. Times reports that Tucker was pushed out by Rupert Murdoch (emphasis ours):
People familiar with the situation who were not authorized to comment publicly said the decision to fire Carlson came straight from Fox Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch.
Carlson’s exit is related to the discrimination lawsuit filed by Abby Grossberg, the producer fired by the network last month, the people said.
Murdoch is also said to be concerned over Carlson’s coverage of the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, in which the host has promoted the conspiracy theory that it was provoked by government agents.
Carlson has called Ray Epps — a Texas man who participated in the storming of the Capitol but did not enter the building — an FBI plant, without presenting any evidence.
Epps was interviewed Sunday on “60 Minutes” and said he has been subjected to death threats as a result of Carlson’s statements about him. The FBI told “60 Minutes” that Epps has never worked for the agency.
The decision is not related to the $787.5-million settlement Fox News agreed to pay to Dominion Voting Systems last week, according to a representative for Dominion.
However, some of the comments that Carlson had made about management in communications that turned up in the discovery process for the case may have also played a role in Carlson’s demise.
Dominion accused Fox of knowingly making false claims related to the 2020 election.
Grossberg was moved off of “Sunday Morning Futures With Maria Bartiromo” and onto “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” where she said was bullied and subjected to antisemitic comments. She filed a lawsuit in New York.
For years, Carlson hosted “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” which gave a voice to countless forgotten Americans. His show was the only mainstream outlet for the “Silent Majority,” a group of Americans who felt they were being ignored by the mainstream media and politicians.
Carlson’s departure from Fox News has left a huge, gaping hole. He spoke to the concerns of millions of Americans who felt like their voices weren’t being heard. He tackled issues that were important to everyday middle-class folks, from immigration to free speech, and did so in a way that was unapologetically honest.
UPDATE: Latest ratings show Tucker’s complete domination.
Here’s how Tucker dominated with the prime demographic.
UPDATE: Don Jr.’s righteous indignation:

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. pointed out that Tucker slammed Big Pharma — a massive source of advertising revenue for television — on April 19th.
Tucker Carlson last week ripped big pharma spending hundreds of millions of dollars on TV ads and news outlets routinely parroting drug industry talking points. Is there a single example of a CNN, MSNBC or other Fox News host ever discussing TV advertising corruption? pic.twitter.com/vVfi4BohcK

This comment by Senator J.D. Vance is eerie in hindsight:

Vance took to Twitter to comment, “Tucker is the most courageous person in American media.”
This comment and video are insightful:

Now that Tucker Carlson has left Fox News, many of his loyal fans are wondering what comes next for the popular host. In the meantime, many are canceling their Fox subscriptions.
Is Fox News about to get the “Bud Light” treatment? Let’s hope so. One things for certain, Carlson’s departure is a reminder of the power of the media. If they don’t like the message, they can just pull the plug.
