In recent developments at Fox News, two prominent producers have bid farewell to Tucker Carlson’s former show, marking a significant shift in the aftermath of the network’s decision to sideline Mr. Carlson, Your Content has learned.

Alexander McCaskill, previously the managing editor and a senior producer for “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” announced via Instagram that he concluded his tenure at the network on Thursday.

Likewise, Thomas Fox, a senior editorial producer for the show, also departed this week, according to sources familiar with the matter.

While one insider revealed that discussions regarding Mr. McCaskill and Mr. Fox leaving the network were underway before Tuesday, an event catalyzed their departures.

A chyron displayed on Fox News, labeling President Biden as a “wannabe dictator,” triggered the sequence of events.

In a video shared on Twitter, Mr. Carlson clarified that the contentious chyron was the work of a producer who had since left the network.

Although Mr. McCaskill was not mentioned by name, Mr. Carlson cited details about the individual that aligned with Mr. McCaskill’s profile, such as his lengthy tenure at Fox News spanning over a decade.

Mr. McCaskill’s and Mr. Fox’s departures were met with silence from a Fox News spokeswoman.

However, the company issued a statement on Wednesday asserting that the chyron was swiftly removed and addressed.

When contacted for comment, Mr. Fox declined, while Mr. McCaskill did not respond to the request.

Mr. McCaskill’s exit, which he personally acknowledged in a private Instagram post on Thursday.

Today was my last day at Fox,” he shared.

“It’s been a wild 10 years, and it was the best place I ever worked because of the great people I met. But the time has come. I asked them to let me go, and they finally did.”

Both Mr. McCaskill and Mr. Fox are named defendants in a discrimination lawsuit filed against Fox by Abby Grossberg, a former producer who briefly worked on Mr. Carlson’s show.

Ms. Grossberg accuses Mr. McCaskill and other producers on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” of fostering a toxic and misogynistic work environment, including harassment, the use of derogatory language towards women, and making antisemitic remarks.

Confidential sources indicate that settlement discussions are ongoing between Fox News and Ms. Grossberg.

Furthermore, Ms. Grossberg had accused Fox News of pressuring her into providing a misleading deposition in the high-profile defamation lawsuit involving Dominion Voting Systems. However, she has since dropped that case. Following the settlement of the Dominion suit for $787.5 million, Fox removed Mr. Carlson from the airwaves.

Fox executives had grown increasingly concerned about the challenges he posed to the network.

Despite this, Mr. Carlson remains under contract with Fox, which has demanded that he cease posting videos on Twitter.

Notably, Charles Couger, the executive producer of “Tucker Carlson Originals,” Mr. Carlson’s show on the Fox Nation streaming service, also departed the network in May, as indicated on his LinkedIn profile.

Mr. Couger declined to comment on his departure, according NYTimes.
