Tucker Carlson currently serves as the host of FOX News Channel's (FNC) Tucker Carlson Tonight (weekdays 8PM/ET). He joined the network in 2009 as a contributor.
Tucker Carlson Tonight features powerful analysis and spirited debates with guests from across the political and cultural spectrum. Carlson brings his signature style to tackle issues largely uncovered by the media in every corner of the United States, challenging political correctness with a "Campus Craziness" segment and tackling media bias and outrage during "TwitterStorm."
In 2012, Carlson was a co-host of FOX & Friends Weekend (weekends 6-10AM/ET), until taking on a new primetime role on Tucker Carlson Tonight at 7PM/ET, in place of On the Record. A few months following, the program was promoted to the 9PM/ET timeslot, replacing The Kelly File and later The O'Reilly Factor at 8PM/ET.
While at FNC, Carlson has provided analysis for America's Election Headquarters on primary and caucus nights, including the 2016 and 2012 presidential elections, as well as the 2014 midterm election. He also produced an FNC special, Fighting for Our Children's Minds, in 2010.
Prior to FNC, Carlson hosted Tucker on MSNBC from 2005-2008 and PBS' Tucker Carlson: Unfiltered. He joined CNN in 2000 as its youngest anchor ever co-hosting The Spin Room and went on to become co-host of CNN's Crossfire until its 2005 cancellation. In 2003, he wrote an autobiography about his cable news experience titled "Politicians, Partisans and Parasites: My Adventures in Cable News." Additionally, Carlson founded and acted as editor-in-chief of The Daily Caller, a political news website he launched in 2010.
Carlson graduated with a B.A. in history from Trinity College.
