Sean Hannity, Fox News anchor and friend of Tucker Carlson, said Monday evening he was stunned by the announcement that Fox News Media and Carlson had parted ways.
Hannity addressed the awkward issue during his Monday evening radio program, “The Sean Hannity Show,” saying of the news, “It’s very hard.”
Hannity and Carlson were known for their friendly banter as they occasionally had a minute of overlap between their back-to-back top-rated programs.
On Monday morning, Fox executives cryptically announced that Fox News Media and Tucker Carlson had “parted ways” and that Carlson would not be returning to the network. Neither Hannity nor Carlson were aware of the coming termination.
Hannity shared: “My phone has been blowing up all day. The hard part for me is I don’t have a clue … I have no idea. Was it Tucker’s decision?”
Was it Fox’s? Was it a mutual agreement that they had? I don’t know.”
Hannity continued: “I guess people think that because I’ve been there the longest that I’d have some knowledge or understanding of what’s going on, but… I just don’t.”
Hannity seemed to swipe at how the Fox network does not value loyalty, noting that tenure at Fox News does not provide a sense of security or inside knowledge.
Reportedly, Carlson was told of his termination 10 minutes before the network made an announcement.
Fox contributors Megyn Kelly, Dan Bongino and Candace Owens have blasted Fox for the way they have handled the matter.
Former President Trump noted he was “stunned.
Former Fox News host Glenn Beck ominously predicted that Tucker’s exit from the network would “kill” Fox News.
