WATCH: Tucker Carlson Reveals His Experience Being Fired From Fox News In First Interview Since Departure

On Friday, former Fox News host Tucker Carlson joined Russell Brand for his first interview following his departure from his former network.

During the interview, Carlson revealed what it was like to be let go from the media giant, revealing that he was surprised and shocked at the sudden nature of the network's turn.

When asked about how the firing has impacted him, Tucker said, "Well, I have been fired. This isn't the first time that I have been fired. I think in our business when you work in a big company in media and you share what you think, there is an expectation that you could be fired."

"I was surprised," he said. "I didn't expect to get fired that morning at all in April. So I was shocked but I wasn't really shocked. I wasn't mad. It's not my company and when you work for someone else, that person reserves the right and has inherently the right to decide whether you work there or not."

"I don't know why I was fired, I really don't. I'm not angry about it. You can believe me or not but I think you can feel that I'm not. You know, I wish Fox well," the conservative host said. "There was ugly leaking, 'I'm a racist' or whatever. They leaked or someone there leaked to the New York Times. That's not true and I think the people who run the company know that's not true. I actually don't think they did it and I'm not mad about it. I've been happy."

Carlson then went on to explain that he hoped to not get demotivated to continue to put out content. He explained that "people who are healthy and aware and can read have an obligation to be engaged in the life of the community they live in, the life of the country that they live in, and in the life of the world, to the extent that they can."

"My only fear has been maybe being a little too happy," Carlson stated, adding that he has been enjoying his time off but "life has got to be more than that."
