Fox News Strips Tucker Carlson’s Home Studio

Fox News crews swooped in and dismantled Tucker Carlson's Maine recording studio just as he was preparing to take his show to Twitter, has learned exclusively.

And the studio – in a converted barn – will now have to be completely rebuilt after being left in shambles by the network's crew.   'They took the set and everything, all the equipment, the chairs, the desk, the fake walls, everything.'

Now the conservative firebrand is helping work alongside a three-man construction crew at the studio in downtown Woodstock.

Carlson, 54, spends his summers in the rural town, 55 miles west of the state capital Augusta, where Fox had built a set in an old barn so he could broadcast the show remotely. He was due to start filming from the satellite studio within a few weeks when he was suddenly fired by the network on April 24. 

Tucker has since given his own crew a new job, to get the studio back up and running. But the removal of the original set meant they had to repair the infrastructure. 'There's no hardware in place at all,' Feeney said. 'There's not even an infrastructure for a TV studio for a long time.' 

The company gave no official reason why they let their most-watched anchor go, but the decision came just six days after Fox settled with Dominion Voting Systems paying the company $787.5 million in a defamation lawsuit.

On May 10, he announced he is launching a new version of his show. He posted a three-minute video on his Twitter page captioned 'We're back,' slamming the mainstream media while telling his followers: 'Starting soon we'll be bringing a new version of the show we've been doing for the last six and a half years to Twitter.'
