After graduating from Trinity School in 1991, Tucker Carlson entered print journalism, writing for a wide range of right-leaning and mainstream publications.
His transfer into broadcast started his ascent into stardom. Here’s a transient timeline of his profession.
Mr. Carlson began at CNN in 2000 as a number of “The Spin Room.”
In 2001, he sparred with commentators from the left as a number of “Crossfire,” a debate present during which he performed a memorably contentious interview with the comic Jon Stewart. The present was canceled in 2005, and CNN ended its relationship with Mr. Carlson.
His present, “Tucker Carlson: Unfiltered,” lasted a few yr and ran similtaneously CNN’s “Crossfire.” It was a part of an effort by the general public media community so as to add ideological steadiness.
In what would now be an sudden pairing, Mr. Carlson hosted “Tucker” on the cable information community till 2008, when it was canceled for low scores. MSNBC steadily moved to the left throughout his tenure.
