In the wake of Fox News Media’s shocking announcement Monday that the network and Tucker Carlson had “agreed to part ways,” some people shared stories about their own personal experiences with Tucker Carlson.
Radio host Larry O’Connor noted that Carlson once invited him over for Thanksgiving at a time when he would have otherwise had a “lonely” holiday.
“When I moved to DC, @TuckerCarlson knew it was my first Thanksgiving away from home. I had just gotten divorced and my kids were on the other side of the country. He invited me over his and I enjoyed Thanksgiving with his dad, his wife, their kids and their dogs. They treated me like I was part of the family. It turned what would have been a sad and lonely day into one I will never forget. His family is filled with joy and love and laughter. Tucker is the winner today,” O’Connor tweeted.
Conservative commentator Matt Walsh of the Daily Wire shared that Carlson had once reached out to express his appreciation for her work.
“Tucker texted me out of the blue a few years ago just to say he appreciates my work. He had a much lower profile then. I don’t think he even knew who I was. He took the time to follow up. download my number and contact me. very few people like that in this business,” Walsh tweeted.
u201cExtremely rare for someone much higher up the totem pole to send you a word of encouragement when you get nothing out of it. There are only a few people in the business who will do something like that and one of them is Tucker Carlson. Great talent and a good man.u201d

“Tucker Carlson called me once, out of the blue, because he had heard through friends that he was going through a rough patch,” Nate Hochman tweeted. “We had never spoken before but he took 45 minutes out of his night to offer support/advice. It remains one of the most surreal experiences of my life.”

“Tucker Carlson is one of the kindest public figures who has helped me unconditionally over the years. I’ve seen him do that for others, too,” wrote reporter Andy Ngô.
u201cA good measure of character and humility in a public figure is the time they are willing to spend helping the “statless”. I have encountered some who only partner as long as it benefits their brand or project. nnTucker Carlson is one of the kindest public figures who helpedu2026u201d
