Fox News Names Megyn Kelly’s Replacement: Tucker Carlson

cording to the Drudge Report, Fox News executives have decided on a replacement for superstar host Megyn Kelly: Tucker Carlson.

Carlson has rapidly risen in the ratings in his 7 p.m. nightly slot, performing strongly enough to convince Fox execs that he is the right man to fill the big shoes of the seat being vacating by Kelly, who is moving to NBC News after a 12-year run with Fox that ended rather tumultuously.

“Tucker has already proven to be an audience powerhouse at 7 PM, now sky is the limit!” an insider told Drudge, adding, “FOX NEWS will not be tamed.”

Carlson has made a name for himself with his edgy, in-your-face interview style and his disarming wit. Though he’s new as a full-time Fox anchor, he is not new to the industry, having anchored various shows in the past for some of the other major networks, including MSNBC and CNN, and appeared as a panelist just about everywhere. He also helped found conservative news site The Daily Caller.

UPDATE: The Wall Street Journal has confirmed Drudge’s report, specifying that  Carlson will begin on Monday and that “Fox News personality Martha MacCallum will take over at 7 p.m. at least initially for the first three months of Donald Trump’s presidency with a show called ‘The First 100 Days.'”

Below are a few highlights from Fox’s Tucker Carlson Tonight that show his equally witty, charming, and combative style:
