Tucker Carlson: Jesse Watters has been named as the star anchor's replacement by Fox News

2017 Jesse Watters

Tucker Carlson has been fired, and Fox News has announced that longtime network personality Jesse Watters will take his place.

The channel's primetime ratings have declined as a result of the departure of Carlson, the most popular cable news host in US history.

The network hired Mr. Watters, 44, as a production assistant in 2002. Since the beginning of this year, he has anchored the 19:00 EDT (23:00 GMT) timeslot.

Carlson and Fox News announced their separation in April.

Days prior to the announcement, Dominion, a manufacturer of voting machines, filed a defamation suit against the network for its coverage of the 2020 presidential election.

Later, Carlson debuted a brand-new show on Twitter.

A change in the channel's nightly lineup coincides with Watters' episode airing in Carlson's old 20:00 timeslot.

The popular late-night host Greg Gutfeld will take over at 22:00, the network announced on Monday. Laura Ingraham, host of The Ingraham Angle, will move to the 19:00 hour.

According to the network, Sean Hannity will continue to host his show at 21:00. Hannity has been a primetime Fox anchor for more than 20 years.
