Megyn Kelly Leaving Fox News For NBC

Megyn Kelly Leaving Fox News For NBC

We still aren't sure when she'll first appear on NBC, but Fox News has announced she will only anchor The Kelly File through Friday, January 6.

No word yet about Kelly's move from her nemesis, US President-elect Donald Trump.

Despite her disagreement with Trump-and a few tense exchanges with host Bill O'Reilly after she said she was sexually harassed by former Fox chairman Roger Ailes-there's no question that Kelly has been a key player at the conservative-leaning network.

Ms Kelly will host her own daytime news and discussion program at NBC, as well as presenting an in-depth Sunday night news show.

The anchor will front a new one hour daytime program that "she will develop closely with NBC News colleagues", the network announced on Tuesday.

In a Facebook post, Kelly said she was "incredibly enriched for the experiences" she had in a dozen years at Fox News. Net income totaled 51 cents per share for the three-month period, more than exceeding a consensus analyst forecast that had predicted 44 cents a share.

According to the Times, Kelly's contract with Fox is not up until this summer and it is not immediately clear whether or not she will be released from her current contract or when she will be starting her new job with NBC.

In response, Kelly said it was Ailes who had made Fox News look bad.

News' announcement that popular anchor Megyn Kelly will be leaving Fox News didn't prompt investors to sell shares in 21st Century Fox (FOXA) immediately. According to the Times, she accepted the triple role after being "wooed" by NBC News chairman Andrew Lack.

The biggest immediate story is the way Kelly's loss threatens the dominance Fox News has enjoyed for years in prime time. Additionally, Fox's cable TV networks, which also include FX, the National Geographic Channel, Fox Sports 1 and the YES Network, have been on fire.

Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.

The Wall Street Journal reported she is collecting $15 million during the final year of her contract. Trump responded by later calling Kelly a "lightweight", a "bimbo", and by making a menstruation joke, saying Kelly had "blood coming out of her whatever".

Kelly has become one of Fox's biggest stars during her run there.

Kelly was in an awkward work setting at Fox over the a year ago to say the least.
