Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson plans to relaunch his show on Twitter, risking a battle with the news outlet that he remains contracted to, despite his dismissal last month.
In a video posted on Twitter with the caption “we’re back”, Carlson said: “Starting soon, we’ll be doing a new version of the show we’ve been doing for the last six and a half years on Twitter.”
Mr Carlson was abruptly taken off the air last month, with the network saying only they “agreed to part ways”.
His departure came shortly after Fox News’ parent company settled a defamation lawsuit with voting machine company Dominion for $787.5m (£631m).
Mr Carlson was implicated in the case and expected to testify. He made sexist and racist remarks in messages used as evidence by Dominion.
