Tucker Carlson’s star just keeps rising. Less than a month ago, he took over the 8 PM slot on the FOX News channel. Now he has landed a book deal for big money.
The Daily Caller reported:
Fox News’s Tucker Carlson Lands Big Book Deal
Daily Caller co-founder Tucker Carlson has landed a whopping book deal.
It’s for two books. The publisher is Threshold Editions. He’s reportedly getting $9 million.
Threshold’s President Louise Burke announced the news Tuesday.
Carlson, host of Fox News’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, has obviously blossomed at Fox News.
After the election, he left Fox & Friends and took over Greta Van Susteren‘s 10 p.m. slot when she fled to MSNBC. And then when Megyn Kelly left for NBC, he moved to 9p.m. With the sudden exit of Bill O’Reilly in the past two weeks because of that whole sexual harassment mess, Carlson has assumed yet another new time slot — 8 p.m. and primetime. The release says his “still young” show is widely cited in many media outlets and many of his segments have “gone viral.”
Threshold called him a “conservative mainstay for the better part of two decades.”
Carlson — who, according to the numerous profilers who tried to figure him out but really couldn’t, once wore a f–king bowtie — remarked that he’s pleased to be working with this company and is “proud to be published alongside so many of my favorite authors.”
Tucker has worked very hard to get where he is. He deserves this success!
