Former Fox News host and Daily Caller co-founder Tucker Carlson announced Tuesday his show will air exclusively on Twitter from this point forward.

Carlson tweeted a short video breaking the news about where his program will air.

“The news you consume is a lie. A lie of the stealthiest and most insidious kind. The facts have been withheld on purpose. You’re being manipulated,” he said.

“Starting soon, we will be bringing a new version of the show we’ve been doing for last 6 and a half years to Twitter.”

Fox News parted ways with Carlson in April and ratings in his 8PM slot have plummeted since his departure. His show,”Tucker Carlson Tonight,” was the highest rated cable news show and beloved by conservatives.

Carlson’s contract with the network reportedly extends until January 2025, right after the 2024 presidential election. He is preparing to partner with allies to attack Fox News in order to get out of his contract, Axios reported Sunday.

Tapes of Carlson were leaked to left-wing group media matters and a text message was sent to the New York Times (NYT) attempting to discredit Carlson. Fox News sent Media Matters a cease-and-desist letter Friday after conservatives praised Carlson’s conduct and criticized the leaks.
