Major Media Shakeup: Tucker Carlson Leaves Fox News While CNN Dumps Don Lemon

In a major media shakeup, Fox News has parted ways with No. 1 host Tucker Carlson, and CNN parted ways with scandal-prone Don Lemon. What will this do to the media landscape? Talent-wise, anyone can replace Don Lemon. But Fox News will be the one counting their losses when it comes to Tucker Carlson. Carlson had 3 million viewers per night, surpassing any other host on Fox or cable news. He even beat previous rating superstar Sean Hannity.

Fox Corp’s stock dropped about 4 percent—almost a billion dollars in market value—after the news of Carlson’s departure. Many people watched Fox for one reason and one reason alone: Tucker Carlson. He presented information with humor, sarcasm, and logic. One thing is certain, Carlson was never bland but always at the precipice of a cutting-edge discussion. Wherever Tucker Carlson goes next, his fans and influence will surely follow.
