Chris Cuomo, Tucker Carlson to sit for one-on-one conversation on NewsNation

Cable news host Chris Cuomo will broadcast a one-one-one conversation with conservative commentator Tucker Carlson that will air early next week on NewsNation.

The wide-ranging, one-on-one conversation between the two longtime media figures will air Monday, March 11, at 8 p.m. EDT.

During the conversation, the pair will discuss Carlson’s “departure from Fox News Media, the recent criticism he received for his interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Jan. 6, among other topics,” the network said in a press release promoting the broadcast.

The conversation will mark Carlson’s first national television appearance since his exit from Fox.

He was ousted from his show at Fox last spring, just weeks after the network agreed to pay Dominion Voting Systems $787 million to settle claims of defamation brought against the company in connection with its coverage of former President Trump’s assertions of fraud in the 2020 election.

Carlson has since launched a new show on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, and started his own media company.

The pundit has sparked waves of backlash in recent weeks for his commentary on Russia and an interview he published with Putin.

Cuomo was fired by CNN in December of 2021 and has since joined NewsNation, a cable news channel that like The Hill, is owned by Nexstar Media Group.
