Who is Tucker Carlson’s wife? Susan Andrews' marriage to Fox News star was 'very 19th century'
Susan has known Tucker since they were teenagers. The future news fixture asked her father -- who once served as headmaster at St George's private school in Rhode Island -- for permission to marry his daughter
Fox News star Tucker Carlson has been married for nearly three decades to high school sweetheart Susan Andrews. The 51-year-old socio-political commentator hosts primetime hit show 'Tucker Carlson Tonight', which airs at 8 pm on weeknights, but what do we really know about the love of his life?
According to a report by The Sun, Susan has known Tucker since they were teenagers. The future news fixture asked her father -- who once served as headmaster at St George's private school in Rhode Island -- for permission to marry his daughter.
When did they get married?
"She was the cutest 10th-grader in America,” Tucker told People of Susan in 2000. Meanwhile, Susan recalled to the magazine how Tucker had a "bounce in his walk. He was in his khaki pants and ribbon belt and I thought, even then, he seemed so optimistic and positive.” In 1991, after receiving permission from her father, Tucker and Susan took the holy vows and tied the knot. “All very 19th-century,” he told People, “but a good thing to do.” The doting pair has three daughters -- namely Hopie, Dorothy, and Lillie -- and son Buckley. According to People, Lillie is the oldest, followed by Buckley, Hopie, Dorothy.
Given his stance on hot button political topics, not much is known about his wife over privacy concerns, but according to sources, she has worked at the At Your Service Hospitality Management, LLC in Laurel, Maryland.
Tucker Carlson Tonight
Tucker has hosted his eponymous opinion show since it launched in 2016. "Tucker Carlson Tonight is the sworn enemy of lying, pomposity, smugness, and groupthink," according to the description on the show's website. "We ask the questions that you would ask - and demand answers."
Tucker was previously a co-host of Fox & Friends Weekend, and has also provided analysis for America's Election Headquarters. From 2005 to 2008, Tucker hosted eponymous shows 'Tucker' on MSNBC and 'Tucker Carlson: Unfiltered' on PBS. He became the youngest anchor ever to join CNN in 2000 and would later host 'Crossfire'.
Attacks on Jill Biden
Earlier this week, MEAWW reported how Carlson weighed in on the controversy over a Wall Street Journal op-ed, which mocked Jill Biden's use of the title "doctor." Carlson, on his Fox News show, showed his support for the op-ed's writer, Joseph Epstein, and took a swipe at the future first lady, saying that she held the same honorific as Dr. Pepper and accused her of having "status anxiety." Epstein, in his article last week, had said Jill Biden, who has a Ph.D. from the University of Delaware, was a "doctor of education, which means basically nothing."
Carlson agreed with Epstein and said that he was making a "true and obvious point." The Fox News presenter said: "Jill Biden is not a doctor, no. Maybe in the same sense Dr. Pepper is. In 2007, at the age of 55, she got a doctorate in education, so she's got the same degree as Dr. Bill Cosby." Carlson was referring to Cosby's doctorate in education from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 1976. The comedian is currently serving a three to ten-year sentence for sexual assault.
Carlson also noted that Jill Biden, in 2009, said that she wanted to get a Ph.D. because she was tired of letters to "Senators and Mrs. Biden." The presenter accused her of having "status anxiety," saying she "decided to cure that, as so many do in our country, with another pointless title."
