Tucker Swanson McNear Carlson, born on May 16th, 1969, in San Francisco, California, is a political news anchor, journalist, political analyst, commentator, author, and producer in the United States. He is well-known for his ardent libertarian-conservative views and his TV program, Tucker Carlson Tonight. Raised in Carlsbad, a suburb of San Diego, by his adoptive mother, Patricia Caroline Swanson (formerly Howard Feldman's wife and the only heiress of the Swanson Food Conglomerate fortune), and his biological parents, Lisa McNear and Richard Warner Carlson, Tucker had a younger brother whom he looked after. His father, Richard Warner, was a former news anchor in Los Angeles. Tucker attended St. George's School, a boarding school in Middletown, Rhode Island, and later studied history at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut. His wealthy upbringing likely influenced his conservative views.
Tucker Carlson married his high school sweetheart, Susan Carlson. The two met when they were fifteen while they were still high school students at St. George High. The couple got married in 1991. Together, they had three daughters named Lillie, Dorothy, and Hope, and a son named Buckley Carlson.
Tucker Carlson's career began as a member of the editorial staff of a national journal called the Policy Review. He later worked as a reporter for The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette newspaper in Little Rock, Arkansas. Carlson has reported around the world as a newspaper and magazine journalist, writing for publications such as Esquire, The New Republic, The Daily Beast, The New Yorker, Reader's Digest, The New York Times Magazine, and The Weekly Standard. With Neil Patel, Carlson launched a news website called The Daily Caller, of which he was made the editor-in-chief and often wrote his political opinions. The Daily Caller has been enriched with many big-time blog writers, and its reports have been cited on many major news channels. Carlson's early work with a conservative tabloid influenced his thinking and values, leading him to become a traditional thinker, and his attitude is reflected in the jobs he accepts.
Tucker Carlson has been a political and news commentator at Fox News for a long time, but he got his break when he joined CNN. When Carlson started at CNN, he was the youngest anchor there. Carlson got his start on TV as co-host of the CNN program Crossfire. He also hosted a public access program called Tucker Carlson: Unfiltered and produced a program at MSNBC called Tucker, which was shut down after a few seasons due to low ratings. After joining Fox News as a contributor in 2009, he regularly presented several programs and shows as a host or anchor.
