Tucker Carlson Leaves Fox News

One of the highest rated US TV hosts, Tucker Carlson, is leaving Fox News, the US media giant has announced.

In a statement, Fox said that the network and Mr Carlson have agreed to "part ways".

His last TV programme was Friday 21 April, the statement added. His primetime slot will now be hosted by a series of interim hosts until a permanent replacement is found.

The brief, two paragraph statement gave no reason for the decision.

The announcement comes just days after Fox News settled a defamation lawsuit from the voting machine company Dominion over its coverage of the 2020 presidential election
