Tucker seen rebuilding barn-turned-satellite studio as loyalists reportedly ditch Fox to join new venture

Editor’s note: A source with insider knowledge revealed that the Fox New

Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson was seen rebuilding his barn-turned-satellite studio with a small construction team in preparation for his new venture after his former employer descended on his remote set near his Maine summer home and dismantled it.

It’s also being rumored that loyalists at Fox News are jumping ship to join Carlson for his new show that will air on Twitter, according to the Daily Mail.

Fox came in last week and got all their sh*t out of there,” Patrick Feeney, who is managing the construction work for Carlson told the Daily Mail. “They took the set and everything, all the equipment, the chairs, the desk, the fake walls, everything.”

A source with knowledge of the situation clarified that Fox removed the equipment, which is owned by the network, “after building a custom studio at their expense – they did not tear down the studio.”

Carlson, 54, is not afraid to get his hands dirty and is working with his three-man construction crew at the studio in downtown Woodstock, Maine.

He spends his summer in the small town that is 55 miles west of the state capital, Augusta. He has used the set in his barn to work for Fox News when he broadcasts remotely. Now, the set is totally in shambles and Carlson and his construction guys are rushing to rebuild it.

“There’s no hardware in place at all,” Feeney stated. “There’s not even an infrastructure for a TV studio for a long time.”

Carlson spends much of his year in Florida and only recently returned to Woodstock where he owns a house on a lake on the outskirts of town. It’s rural and isolated. A great spot to launch a new venture.

“He just got back late last night after meeting with lawyers and all that stuff,” Feeney told the Daily Mail. “As you can imagine, he’s very, very busy right now.”

Carlson was sidelined at Fox News in April and is trying to disentangle himself from the network. None of that will stop him from launching his new venture as soon as possible as he is sure to be a determining factor in the coming presidential election in 2024. He is the hottest thing on the market right now.

Despite legal proceedings that are almost certain to include Carlson accusing Fox of terminating him as a condition of the Dominion Voting Systems lawsuit, the conservative is charging forward with his new venture.

On May 10, Carlson announced he is launching a new version of his show that will be even more intense than the one on Fox News because he will be able to say exactly what he thinks and believes. He posted a three-minute video on his Twitter page captioned “We’re back,” that blasted 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.”

According to Variety, a number of Fox News anchors have reached out to Carlson telling him they would be happy to join him in his venture when their contracts expire.

The media outlet also reported that Carlson is aiming at launching the show within a month with his former senior executive producer Justin Wells at his side. Wells was also fired at Fox News when Carlson was canned.

The Daily Mail reported that, according to an “insider,” a number of the network’s employees have already quit to join Carlson.

According to Carlson’s construction foreman, the show will not launch within a month if it is being done in Maine. It will take longer than that to rebuild the barn studio. As far as he knows, there is no solid launch date yet and details are still being hammered out.

“We just came to clean it up and get it looking like something again,” Feeney stated. “There’s no imminent venture. We’re just getting ready in case something does happen. There’s nothing we’re doing other than cleaning the place up, shoring up the walls, making it look good again.”

The three-man construction crew could be seen Thursday sawing wood, extending electrical wires, and repeatedly entering the studio, while banging away with hammers.

Meanwhile, Carlson reportedly worked the phones and dealt with legal issues and fallout from Fox News as he planned his next moves. He emerged from the building at one point to greet his wife Susan who drove up in an SUV bearing crates.

Carlson can be seen in a brown vest with his sleeves rolled up. He sorted through the items in the SUV and grabbed an axe and drill along with a number of boxes. Just like anyone else working on their property, he was seen throwing garbage away in a dumpster while working, which some might say is metaphorical in nature.
