For a lot of Tuesday afternoon and night, Megyn Kelly was trending on Twitter. The information was that Megyn is leaving Fox Information for the NBC Information division, which… comes as no shock. For those who have been listening to Megyn’s trajectory over the previous yr, she was clearly actually sad at Fox Information and different networks have been actively courting her. The one actual shock is that she’s going to NBC out of the entire affords she allegedly obtained. Megyn posted this on Fb yesterday:
Over a dozen years in the past I began at Fox Information in a job that may change my life. Now, I’ve determined to finish my time at FNC, extremely enriched for the experiences I’ve had. I’ve agreed to hitch NBC Information, the place I might be launching a brand new daytime present Monday by way of Friday, together with a Sunday night information journal program. I may also take part in NBC’s breaking information protection and its political and particular occasions protection.
Whereas I’ll vastly miss my colleagues at Fox, I’m delighted to be becoming a member of the NBC Information household and taking up a brand new problem. I stay deeply grateful to Fox Information, to Rupert, Lachlan and James Murdoch, and particularly to the entire FNC viewers, who’ve taught me a lot about what actually issues. Extra to return quickly. Completely satisfied New 12 months, and God bless.
I don’t hate this? Does that make me loopy? Like, I’m uninterested in pretending that Megyn is among the few sane individuals on Fox Information. She’s not – she says offensive and ridiculous issues, identical to the opposite Fox Information anchors. I feel she’s well-suited for a daytime discuss present and present. She’s not an anchor – she’s a faux-news character.
New York Journal had some evaluation of simply what Megyn’s departure means for Fox Information and for her profession. Sources inform NY Magazine that Megyn was very sad at Fox Information and he or she’s anticipating the problem of constructing a brand new viewers for her discuss present. Sources additionally say that the Murdochs are going to switch her time slot (9 pm on weekdays) with a girl, and that the lady will completely be a “pro-Trump conservative.” Sources say the Murdochs are going all-in with Trump now and there received’t be any main on-air character questioning President Child Fists. Superior.
