The Fox News host Tucker Carlson has sold his stake in The Daily Caller, stepping away from the Washington-based conservative news and opinion site he co-founded in 2010 as an alternative to left-leaning outlets like The Huffington Post.

Mr. Carlson, one of the country's most prominent conservative commentators, retained financial ties to The Daily Caller after taking up his prime-time role at Fox News in 2017. But he had yielded day-to-day oversight to his co-founder and college roommate, Neil Patel, the site's publisher and a former chief policy adviser to Vice President Dick Cheney.

"I haven't had editorial input" since the prime-time show began, Mr. Carlson said in an interview on Wednesday, adding that he sold his stake in the site last year. "Neil runs it. I wasn't adding anything. So we made it official."
