A match made in heaven? Well, maybe.

Tucker Carlson, who has been both an MSNBC and CNN correspondent in recent years, has joined up with the Fox News Channel. The network announced Wednesday that the ebullient and often argumentative Mr. Carlson will be sitting in as a co-host on the weekend edition of Fox and Friends.


“We’ve been impressed with Tucker’s lively and thought-provoking appearances on our air and are pleased that he is joining the Fox and Friends weekend team where his vibrant personality will be a great addition to the show,” says Bill Shine, vice president of programming.


Mr. Carlson, of course, has made multiple appearances on Fox News since leaving MSNBC five years ago; his news and opinion site The Daily Caller continues to be a vigorous online presence. Mr. Carlson founded the site in 2010 with Neil Patel, former chief policy adviser to Vice President Dick Cheney.

Mr. Carlson, meanwhile, debuts as a Fox News full-timer on April 6.
