Insiders, who spoke with the Wall Street Journal, have revealed that Tucker Carlson, along with a former White House lawyer, is actively seeking investors for a new media company. Their vision is to establish a media platform that will compete with Fox News and use Twitter as its core platform.

Having once been a conservative megastar, attracting a nightly audience of three million viewers on Fox News, Carlson aims to build on his recent Twitter appearances. These shorter monologues have been consistently attracting tens of millions of viewers per episode. Carlson’s vision for his new venture involves securing substantial investments, possibly in the hundreds of millions of dollars, and implementing a subscription-based model. This would allow viewers to access longer, unedited episodes that are previewed on Twitter, where Carlson boasts a significant following of nine million followers.

Insiders say that fans of Carlson would still have the opportunity to watch his shorter clips on Twitter without charge. Additionally, the emerging media company is expected to expand its roster by incorporating other hosts alongside Carlson.

Carlson will be joined by former White House adviser Neil Patel in their new venture.

The Bay Area Times has provided specific information regarding the funding for the new media venture, along with potential plans for structuring the content.

Reuters confirmed the news:

The company would be anchored by longer versions of the free videos that Carlson has been posting regularly on Elon Musk’s Twitter since his departure from Fox News, but would ultimately be driven by subscriptions, according to the report.

Carlson did not immediately respond to Reuters’ request for a comment, while Patel was not immediately reachable.

Attorneys for Carlson and Fox News are currently in negotiations regarding the terms of his multi-year contract, designed to keep him quiet until the end of the 2024 elections. In response to Carlson’s “Tucker on Twitter” monologues, attorneys representing the network have issued a cease-and-desist letter. As a result, Carlson’s supporters within the network have departed in significant numbers and have leaked damaging information about Fox News, including allegations of contradictory support for transgender employees.

Tucker, however, seems to have the upper hand. With a total of nine episodes aired on his new Twitter show, he has amassed a staggering 467.1 million views. This audience surpasses the viewership he previously had during his time at FOX News.
