Tucker Carlson, best known for his time on Fox News, is an American television personality, political commentator, and journalist.
Tucker Carlson's views are mainly conservative, and he oftentimes gives his opinions on politics, social issues, and cultural trends.
Carlson was earning $10 million a year when he was working for Fox, but he was abruptly fired on April 24, 2023.
The media world was shocked after the sudden decision by Fox, and Tucker made the decision to step away from his Fox contract and venture out on his own, launching a new show on Twitter (now X).
While he was entitled to approximately $10 million per year for the remaining 2.5 years of his Fox contract, Tucker chose to forego $25 million in guaranteed earnings.
Tucker graduated with a degree in history from Trinity College in 1991 and married Susan Andrews the same year.
Carlson's memorable clash with comedian Jon Stewart on the show "Crossfire" is often linked to the cause of the show's cancellation.
Beyond TV, Tucker is a co-founder of The Daily Caller, an author, and a columnist.
Tucker Carlson is worth $30 million and currently splits his time between homes in Florida and Maine.
