Tucker Swanson McNear Carlson (born May 16, 1969) is an American conservative political anchor, pundit, and television personality who works for Fox News Channel, who formerly co-hosted Crossfire on CNN and Tucker on MSNBC and who was one of the few conservative anchors on MSNBC before the network strengthened its progressive stance with its "Lean Forward" campaign.
After commentator Bill O'Reilly resigned from Fox News due to sexual abuse allegations, Carlson replaced him at the 8 pm EDT time slot. He also replaced O'Reilly as the number one rated cable TV show for that time slot.
