For months, there has been rumors that a Fox News star was planning a big move. Megyn Kelly, who drew praise and criticism for her handling of now President-elect Trump during the election, is considered the hottest commodity in broadcast journalism.
There have been rumors that she is moving to another cable news network for more money and a more prominent role.
Kelly has also been embroiled in the harassment scandal involving ex-Fox News head Roger Ailes, who Kelly accused of being inappropriate towards her and other female workers at the news company.
Well, we now have official news on Kelly’s move. This is huge and will no-doubt change the landscape of the news industry.
More via Washington Examiner:
Kelly, who hosts her own primetime show on Fox, is reportedly heading to NBC News to host a daytime news program. She will also host a Sunday night show and participate in special programming, according to the New York Times.
This is huge! Kelly is a rating juggernaut at Fox, regularly out-drawing the main news stations. Her move to NBC will bring millions of viewers to the peacock network, who are in a constant war between ABC and CBS for ratings.
What do you think? Will you watch Megyn on NBC or will you continue to support Fox?
