A Brief Timeline of Tucker Carlson’s Career

After graduating from Trinity College in 1991, Tucker Carlson entered print journalism, writing for a variety of right-wing and mainstream publications.

His transition to broadcasting began his rise to stardom. Here’s a quick timeline of his career.

Carlson began working for CNN in 2000 as the host of “The Spin Room.”

In 2001, he sparred with left-wing commentators as the host of “Crossfire” and gave a memorable and controversial interview with comedian Jon Stewart. The show was canceled in his 2005, and CNN ended its relationship with Mr. Carlson.

His show “Tucker Carlson: Unfiltered” lasted about a year and aired alongside CNN’s “Crossfire.” This was part of an effort by the public media network to strike an ideological balance.

Carlson hosted “Tucker” on the cable news network until it was pulled from the air in 2008 due to low ratings. MSNBC gradually moved left during his tenure.

He began appearing on several shows as a contributor, and in 2016 he became the host of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” occasionally appearing at the 7pm, 8pm and 9pm timeslots. His show became prime time’s highest rated cable news program for him.

Carlson co-founded conservative news site, a pioneer in online conservative journalism, in 2010 and sold his stake in 2020.
