Tucker Carlson Net Worth
Tucker Carlson net worth and salary: Tucker Carlson is a political commentator and TV personality who has a net worth of $20 million. Tucker has earned his net worth mostly through his work as a television pundit, but he is also a published author and columnist. Tucker was born in San Francisco but was raised mostly in Southern California. His father was an LA news anchor and ambassador to the Seychelles named Richard Warner Carlson. Tucker's mother left the family when he was just six years old. When Tucker was 10, Richard married Patricia Caroline Swanson. Patricia's grandfather Carl A. Swanson founded the Swanson frozen foods empire.
His work as a journalist began in print at publications such as Policy Review and the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. From there, he landed gigs as a columnist for periodicals like Reader's Digest and New York Magazine. He also has appeared in newspapers and magazines like Esquire, The Weekly Standard, The New Republic, The New York Times Magazine, and The Daily Beast. Carlson began his career in TV as one of the hosts of the CNN panel discussion program Crossfire. On this show, Carlson generally took up the position of the right-wing point of view. His most notable work during this period was during a contentious interview with comedian Jon Stewart, which many analysts believe directly led to Crossfire's cancellation soon after. Since then, Carlson has found jobs on both of CNN's primary competitors, MSNBC and most recently on Fox News. Carlson is famous not only for his sometimes-idiosyncratic conservative views, but his trademark bow-tie. Wearing a bow-tie is often referred to as "the Tucker Carlson look". In 2017, Tucker took over the slot that Bill O'Reilly left vacant after he was fired from Fox News. Soon after, Tucker reportedly signed a $10 million book deal.
