Russian TV Teases A Tucker Carlson Show, Anchor Responds

russian tv channel rossiya 24 teases a tucker carlson show, airs trailer

Russian TV news channel Rossiya 24 aired a trailer for a weekend show featuring former Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson. There is no official word on when the show will air.

Rossiya 24 is a state-run channel. It has not issued any statement mentioning the possibility of Carlson being involved via a show. The former Fox anchor is currently running his show on X (formerly Twitter) after quitting the company in April.

The Russian channel’s advert was first shared earlier this month. It aired again on September 22 with a note – ‘on the weekend’. However, no other details were provided. The trailer shows Carlson repeatedly saying the word ‘Russia’. It is a montage of clips brought together from his earlier broadcasts. At the end of the clip, he says ’24’.

The on-screen text read: “The high-profile American presenter is moving to another level. Here.”


However, Carlson has said that he has nothing to do with the ads.

“It’s absurd. Come on. Did you actually believe that?” Carlson told Insider over a text message when asked if he had partnered with Russian state TV.

BBC monitoring expert Francis Scarr had earlier posted a video of the show ad with ‘Tucker’ written on it. On Friday, Scarr shared a new image on X.

After leaving Fox News, Tucker Carlson launched a new show on Twitter called “Tucker on Twitter”, which later became “Tucker on X”. He has interviewed several celebrities since, including former US President Donald Trump and American-British media personality Andrew Tate.
