Weeks before it was official, there were murmurings that if Bill O’Reilly‘s Fox News career exploded into flames that Tucker Carlson could easily fill the void.
As quickly as Fox News CEO Rupert Murdoch announced Tuesday that O’Reilly was a goner, news of Carlson taking over his time slot shook the Internet.
Even talk show host Jerry Springer wrote to congratulate him.
Beginning Monday, April 24th, Tucker Carlson Tonight will take over the 8PM timeslot, broadcasting live from FNC’s Washington, DC bureau.
