Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson appeared carefree as he spent time with his wife in Boca Grande, Florida, just days after his sudden departure from Fox News. Despite enjoying his break from the TV network, it seems likely that Carlson isn’t going to retire from the media just yet.

On Monday, it was announced that Carlson, 53, would be leaving Fox News despite being the highest-rated prime-time host on the network. This shakeup sent Fox News’s stock price plummeting.

Carlson’s ousting from the network came less than a week after Fox News settled with Dominion Voting Systems for $787.5 million in a defamation lawsuit over the network’s reporting on election fraud, which Carlson spoke about regularly on his show.

Just two days after his shocking departure from Fox News, Carlson commented on how he is feeling about this recent change. Speaking to Daily Mail on Tuesday night as he exited his $5.5 million beach home, Carlson said, “Retirement is going great so far.”

“I haven’t eaten dinner with my wife on a weeknight in seven years,” he added. “Appetizers plus entree.”

Although Carlson may seem to be enjoying spending his free time with family, the father of four already has potential job offers on the horizon.

CEO of Blaze Media and former Fox News host Glenn Beck has stated that he would like to offer Carlson a job. Founder of The Daily Wire Jeremy Boreing has also said he would extend a job offer to Carlson.

On Tuesday, Carlson reportedly met with Justin Wells, the former senior executive producer of Tucker Carlson Tonight.

However, while Carlson’s attorney, Bryan Freedman, is in the process of negotiating an exit package with Fox Corp, he is not likely to make any moves toward accepting job offers.

Freedman is also representing former CNN anchor Don Lemon, who was ousted from his network the same day as Carlson. Lemon is seeking $125 million for wrongful termination.
