Megyn Kelly Will Leave Fox News for NBC

Megyn Kelly Will Leave Fox News for NBC

Reports say she will get a daytime and Sunday night show.

NBC News has released a statement confirming that Fox News superstar Megyn Kelly will join its news organization:

Kelly will become anchor of a new one hour daytime program that she will develop closely with NBC News colleagues. The show will air Monday through Friday at a time to be announced in the coming months.

As part of the multi-year agreement, Kelly will also anchor a new Sunday evening news magazine show and will become an important contributor to NBC’s breaking news coverage as well as the network’s political and special events coverage.

Details about both of Kelly’s news programs will be unveiled in the coming months.

“Megyn is an exceptional journalist and news anchor, who has had an extraordinary career” Lack said. “She’s demonstrated tremendous skill and poise, and we’re lucky to have her.”

Kelly has released this statement on Facebook:

Kelly’s contract with Fox News ends in the summer.

Kelly made it known in her book Settle for More that she wants to spend more time with her three young children. The oldest of the three arrive home from school just as she leaves for work.

She also claimed that Roger Ailes sexually harassed her, becoming one of twenty women to make the claims:

In her book, Ms. Kelly described her decision to step forward as a painful one that came in the face of a networkwide campaign to support Mr. Ailes, which she viewed as potentially intimidating to other accusers. Her decision to share her story with investigators drew apparent enmity from some rival stars, with the resentment lingering as she deliberated her next career move.

Why the wait?

MeAgain leaving Fox. I’m shock, I tell you .. shocked.

NOT

So, she is leaving “the constant political combat of cable news” to join the constant political combat of network news. That sounds logical.

YAY! And Happy New Year, America.

Kelly who? NBC? Oh that’s right, MSNBC. Those folks. Love their fake news.

She should fit right in with how they edit their bias into their stories like in the Zimmerman Case.

Kelly should have no worries. Only males are only abused and discriminated there. Just ask Jimmy Fallon about it.

Glad the internet is making these talking head even more useless.

Good !! NBC is where she will go to die (careerwise).

Fox is losing a legend in her own mind.

She will not be nearly as popular at NBC.

What is she checking out on her phone?
Weiners weiner? Comparing it to her husbands?

She’ll fit right in with the liberal media. They think it’s all about them and so does she. I hope she doesn’t think people who avoid MSM like the plague are going to all of sudden watch NBC now…

Replace her with Shannon Bream. She is beautiful, smart, and pleasant, unlike MK who is mean and narcissistic.

Hmmm, I wonder how all the liberals who hated Kelly because she was on Fox, will feel about her now? Well, she was a ‘victim’, so I guess they’ll accept her into the women’s victimhood.

These folks are supposed to report the news, not be the news.

So in order to spend more time with her children, she’s going to work six days a week. I guess the nanny can get them fed and to school and picked up from school and put to bed at night.
I never watched her on Fox and now I’ll never watch her on NBC.

Good riddance. She lost me right around the time she cut her hair! Must have pulled some of her brains out!

Don’t let the door hit you, etc.

The only cable news I watch is Fox News, and the only Fox News I’ve watched for at least a year is Bret Baier’s hour. Reading tossed dried chicken bones provides better coverage than cable news. Interpret that as you wish for bloggers who simply rehash cable news stories.

aww me haz a saddy…
not.

I hear all the Trumpbots wailing about MK but if you had watched her career you would know she is one smart lady. She has ten times the ability of anyone else at any msm to interview people and get real answers. Did she screw up in the debate with Trump? Of course, she did and I think she realized it later when she re-interviewed him with softball questions. She is witty and smart and also good looking. I no longer watched her after the debate debacle but she will rise to the top of the dung heap called the msm.

    Trumpbos, I don’t think so. Obviously you really have not followed her. I think you must be thinking from the wrong head.

    She was a light weight when she got started and she still is. I wonder if Britt Humes helped things along? Ha! Trump probably did more for her rating that anything she has done.

    Never like her or Shep. Could not stand Beck.
    I would watched Fox during key events for on the scene coverage only. The MSM is just entertainment for me now. Little did I know that Walter Cronkite was a fake until I got older. Nothing has changed on the small screen. Long live the internet.

    I don’t think you need to keep calling people names. I’ll accept Trump supporters. Not bots. Thank you.

      Might as well not worry about being called names by the #NeverTrumpers. They will not change. It does not matter if he turns out to be the greatest president of the century. They will oppose anything he does, because he does it. They will continue to wish Hillary had won because, well she is not Trump. They will continue to insult us no matter what. The good thing is that having declared themselves openly our enemy for all time, we never have to pay attention to them any more than we do to Leftists. There is no talking to them. There is no reasoning with them. They are never going to be on our side.

      They do remind me of the woman in the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and the Rockettes who are refusing to perform for the inauguration ceremonies. Who would do it gladly if it was Hillary being inaugurated.

      It is what it is.

        “They” is an awfully safe and easy pronoun when lumping huge numbers of people together, the better to throw shit at them. Who exactly do you mean by ‘they’ and how have you obtained their inner thoughts, even well into the future, when they themselves don’t what they’ll think and do?

Weak attempt by NBC to buy their way into better ratings. I doubt it works.

…she wants to spend more time with her three young children …

So obviously, that’s not the reason.

My guess is that as usual, none of this is what it seems.

I’d imagine that after she joined in the pig-pile on Ailes, nobody in FOX management wants her around, and FOX was not going to renew her contract at any price, let alone the twenty million a year she pulls down now. So, time to go somewhere … anywhere … else, even climbing aboard a sinking ship like NBC. Not necessarily a bad move, as even a foundering NBC News will be able to pay her pots of money, probably until long after her shelf life is exceeded.

At 20+ million a year, I reckon she’ll turn out ok.

Henry Hawkins | January 3, 2017 at 4:40 pm

I’m only half, maybe three-quarters, as pretty as Megun Kelly, but I’d do the same as her. I mean, how many commenters would leave their current employer for a new job doing the same thing for over 50% more money?

The fact that Megyn Kelly is going to NBC tells you exactly one thing – that she was never as intelligent as people said she was. She would recognize it as an organization in decline stuffed with people without talent. And she would want to aspire to greater things, creating her own role either at Fox or with a newer organization with a brighter future.

But this makes perfect sense to me. I’m no genius, but am reasonably well educated and informed, and I’ve never found Kelly to have any insights that weren’t obvious and available everywhere else. Never, as in, never ever. In contrast I get new insights and angles from Reynolds, Hoyt, Jacobson, VDH, Limbaugh, Michael Totten, etc all the time.

Good win all around; fake news organization NBC will loose 20 million dollars on Kelly, Fox will save 20 million dollars on Kelly to spend on someone better, and we get to tune into Fox and not see Kelly.
