According to CNBC, the investment firm 1789 Capital already is planning an eight-figure investment in the former Fox News host’s media venture. 1789 Capital is owned by Omeed Malik, a Wall Street banker who has plowed millions into other ventures, including the anti-woke Amazon competitor PublicSq, which was listed on the New York Stock Exchange last month.

Carlson was dismissed from Fox News in April after the company settled a defamation lawsuit with Dominion Voting Systems with a payout in excess of $700 million. No official reason was given for his removal, although reports at the time suggested it was a directive from Fox Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch. “Fox News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part ways,” the company said in a statement. “We thank him for his service to the network as a host and prior to that as a contributor.” Following his exit from the network, Carlson swiftly transitioned to hosting a video series on Twitter.
