Following Tucker Carlson and Fox News "agreeing to part ways" on Monday morning, Tucker Carlson has launched a newsletter to keep his fans informed.

Carlson’s website now displays to viewers a newsletter signup saying to "text Tucker to 44055 to become a tuckercarlson.com insider to find out what Tucker’s up to next."

His website has also removed mentions of his Fox News shows.

A section on the home page previously stated, "Tucker Carlson hosts FOX News Channel’s flagship primetime cable news program, Tucker Carlson Tonight (weekdays 8PM/ET). Carlson and his team recently launched the two flagship programs on the network’s streaming service, Fox Nation, in 2021."

"Tucker Carlson Originals is an in-depth documentary series.  Tucker Carlson Today is an in-depth interview program featuring a single in-studio guest for nearly an hour.  Both programs are heading into their second season and available to stream on FOXNation.com," the section, which now lies blank, previously said.

Carlson’s Twitter bio also now lies blank.

Previously, following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, his Twitter"> bio stated: "Emmy-award-winning broadcast journalist, graduate of Harvard College & Yale Law School. Frequent visitor to the Aspen Inst. Fully vaccinated. She/Hers," with a Ukraine flag emoji on the end.

On Monday morning, Fox News released a statement saying the network and their popular primetime host had "agreed to part ways."

The statement reads: "Mr. Carlson’s last program was Friday, April 21st. Fox News Tonight will air live at 8 PM/ET starting this evening as an interim show helmed by rotating FOX News personalities until a new host is named. 

"FOX News Media operates the FOX News Channel (FNC), FOX Business Network (FBN), FOX News Digital, FOX News Audio, FOX News Books, the direct-to-consumer streaming services FOX Nation and FOX News International and the free ad-supported television service FOX Weather. Currentl the number one network in all of cable, FNC has also been the most watched television news channel for more than 21 consecutive years, while FBN ranks among the top business channels on cable. Owned by Fox Corporation, FOX News Media reaches nearly 200 million people each month."

Carlson’s primetime show, Tucker Carlson Tonight, was frequently the top-rated show on cable news, often surpassing 4.5 million viewers per episode.

Following the news of Carlson’s exit, Fox Corporation’s stock tumbled 5 percent, wiping out $930 million in market value.

Many on social media said they were canceling their subscriptions to Fox following the announcement, with "RIP Fox News" trending on Twitter.
