In the wake of Fox News Media’s surprising Monday announcement that the network and Tucker Carlson would “part ways,” many people took to Twitter to announce that they had cancelled their Fox Nation subscriptions.
“FOX News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part ways. We thank him for his service to the network as a host and prior to that as a contributor,” the media giant announced on Monday. “Mr. Carlson’s last program was Friday April 21st. Fox News Tonight will air live at 8 PM/ET starting this evening as an interim show helmed by rotating FOX News personalities until a new host is named.”
When signing off on what turned out to be his final program last week, Carlson had apparently expected to return to the air this week, because he said, “We’ll be back on Monday.”
Many people announced on Monday that they had canceled their subscription to the Fox Nation streaming service.
“I just cancelled my Fox Nation subscription with the note: ‘No Tucker Carlson, no Fox Nation subscription. Goodbye.’ Who is doing the same?” Scott Morefield tweeted.
