Thu Jan 05 2017 09:30 ET
2017 starts off with a BANG! as FOX NEWS executives will announce Tucker Carlson replaces the vacating Megyn Kelly at 9 PM ET, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.
The dramatic move caps Carlson’s rapid rise at the nation’s top-rated cable channel.
“Tucker has already proven to be an audience powerhouse at 7 PM, now sky is the limit!” an insider explains.
“FOX NEWS will not be tamed.”
In recent weeks, the Carlson show hit #1 audience and demo with a mix of explosive interviews and hard-hitting topics.
Timing isn’t everything in the business, it’s the only thing, and Carlson arrives just as the Trump presidency begins.
The broadcast wunderkind previously anchored shows on CNN, MSNBC and PBS.
From the video:
Tucker: “You’re practicing religion, where anybody who doesn’t agree with what you believe is a heretic and should be penalized. The essence of science is asking questions. I asked you a very direct question you couldn’t answer because you have no idea what the answer is. But that doesn’t stop you from running around talking about science. ‘Science this,’ ‘Science that.’ But you don’t know! . . . Normal people ask questions and they’re not shouted down for it. What you’re trying to do to me is call me names because I’m asking you questions you can’t answer.“
