Although Tucker Carlson had made no public comments about being fired by Fox News as of Tuesday morning, one report said he believes his ouster was part of a one-two punch hitting Fox News.

The host of the ratings juggernaut “Tucker Carlson Tonight” was abruptly axed Monday.

“FOX News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part ways,” Fox News said in a statement. “We thank him for his service to the network as a host and prior to that as a contributor.”

According to Vanity Fair, Carlson has told people he believes his show was killed and he was fired because the Murdoch family plans to sell Fox News. The report cited sources it did not name.

Fox News founder Rupert Murdoch has made his son, Lachlan, the CEO of Fox Corp., the parent of Fox News.

Carlson was called Monday morning by Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott and told his show was being taken down and his Fox News email had been shut down, according to the report.

He told those around him that Scott did not explain the decision, telling him only that it was made “from above,” Vanity Fair reported.
