Tucker Carlson is leaving Fox News, the network announced Monday, marking the departure of a leading voice for the populist right who hosted one of the most-watched cable TV programs in the country at the network.
"FOX News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part ways," the network said in a statement. "We thank him for his service to the network as a host and prior to that as a contributor."
The network said Carlson's last program of Tucker Carlson Tonight was Friday and that an "interim show" will start Monday night hosted by rotating personalities. A new host has not been named.

Carlson advocated an isolationist national policy on the program, often questioning the United States' aid to Ukraine amid Russia's invasion of the country.
The show frequently topped charts and was often the highest-rated cable news show.
