Tucker Carlson will sit down with Caitlyn Jenner on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” late Monday in what will be his first night replacing Bill O’Reilly in the 8 p.m. Eastern time slot on Fox News.
Jenner, a political conservative who has gone from Olympic sports to becoming a voice for some of those in the transgender community, is expected to discuss President Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office, according to Gold Derby.
This comes just days after Fox leader Rupert Murdoch and his sons, Lachlan and James, fired O’Reilly after an “extensive review done in collaboration with outside counsel” in regard to the different sexual harassment allegations plaguing the multimillion-dollar host, Gold Derby reported
O’Reilly had been with Fox News since 1996, and his show “The O’Reilly Factor,” which he hosted for 21 years, has been one of the leading news shows in television ratings for the past several years.
Carlson announced Friday that Jenner would be coming on the show, according Fox News Insider, which noted that Jenner voted for Trump but has had a change of heart.
Prior to O’Reilly’s firing, Carlson appeared on Fox at 9 p.m., but is now moving to the 8 p.m. slot.
Carlson, who once hosted MSNBC’s “Tucker,” has hosted “Tucker Carlson Tonight” since November 2016.
The Caitlyn Jenner interview caught the attention of conservative street artist Sabo, who made phony posters of Jenner, putting her face on fake advertisements of Stephen King’s film, “It,” near the Fox studios, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
