Fox News is giving host Tucker Carlson an even bigger platform for his conservative opinions and content.
The network announced on Wednesday that Carlson will host a new video podcast and a long-form documentary series, Tucker Carlson Originals, on Fox Nation, Fox News Media’s on-demand, subscription-based streaming service..
He will continue to host his current program, Tucker Carlson Tonight, during its 8 p.m. time slot during the week.
“As we continue to expand and evolve as a service, adding exclusive content from Tucker Carlson will make Fox Nation a must-have service for his most passionate fans,” Fox Nation President Jason Klarman said in the announcement.
Carlson, a Donald Trump advocate and opponent of political progressives, has become a divisive news figure who is often the subject of controversy because of misinformation he has bolstered on his nightly political talk show.
Beginning in April, the Fox host will release at least three new video podcast episodes per week. That same month, the documentary series will debut and continue monthly.
“This is my twelfth year at Fox News and I’ve never been more grateful to be here,” Carlson said in the press release. “As other media outlets fall silent or fall in line, Fox News Media’s management has redoubled its commitment to honesty and freedom of speech. I consider that heroic at a time like this.”
This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
