Journalist Megyn Kelly will continue her career at NBC with much better conditions than she had at Fox News and She is so exited for her new position and is happy that she will spend more time with her children. Also she will have a new one-hour show.
From Western Journalism:
Fox News presenter Megyn Kelly is transferring to NBC, the network revealed Tuesday.
The claim announcing Kelly’s signing with NBC said she will secure a new one-hour week day daytime program, that she will establish.
NBC will likewise produce a Sunday evening news magazine show for Kelly, who will take part in NBC’s breaking news, political and special events.
“Megyn is an exceptional journalist and news anchor, who has had an extraordinary career. She’s demonstrated tremendous skill and poise, and we’re lucky to have her,” said Andrew Lack, chairman of the NBCUniversal News Group.
Conditions of Kelly’s agreement with NBC were not revealed.
The move delivered strong response on Twitter, with many supporters of President-elect Donald Trump applauding the move.
Megyn Kelly could not separate her own drama from actual news. Her brand will have perfect synergy with a failing network like NBC.

Megyn Kelly is likely leaving for NBC because Tucker Carlson has been overshadowing her with his high-energy wokeness.

Fox had apparently offered Kelly $20 million a year to continue to be with the network. The Wall Street Journal lately reported Kelly is making $15 million in the last year of her Fox contract, when ends in July.
Kelly, whose The Kelly File is the second-most-watched program on Fox News, behind Bill O’Reilly’s The O’Reilly Factor, ended up being one of broadcast journalism’s most well-known names after her fight with Trump throughout the Republican presidential primaries.
This previous summer, she also became involved in an internal controversy at Fox, when Fox News CEO Roger Ailes was implicated of sexual harassment by a number of women at the network. Kelly told Fox investigators that she too had been harassed by Ailes, a factor that led to his pressured resignation. She later on went into detail regarding Ailes’ unsuitable behavior towards her.
As mentioned by Western Journalism, several reports have portrayed Kelly as being excited to leave behind Fox after being denounced by some there for placing herself above the network.
In recent weeks, Kelly had shown that she was open to leaving Fox to have a more adaptable life that would enable her to have more time with her kids.
