Tucker Carlson will take over as the next host of "On the Record," Fox News host Brit Hume announced in a tweet Thursday.

Carlson is currently a host on "Fox & Friends Weekend" and editor-in-chief of The Daily Caller, a conservative news website.

Hume had temporarily taken over as host of the program when Greta Van Susteren abruptly departed the network.
