Did anyone ever like this chick anyway? Looks like Megyn just committed social suicide by turning her back on conservative fans…but hey, if they can pay; why stay? Morals, typically. But perhaps she lost hers to money. Duces, Megyn..it’s been real.
VIA| Megyn Kelly, who arrived at Fox News 12 years ago as a television news neophyte but rose to become one of its two biggest stars, has decided to leave the network to take on a broad new role at NBC News for an undisclosed amount, people briefed on the negotiations said on Tuesday.
The NBC News chairman, Andrew Lack, wooed Ms. Kelly away from Fox News by offering her a triple role in which she will host her own daytime news and discussion program, anchor an in-depth Sunday night news show and take regular part in the network’s special political programming and other big-event coverage.
The move will herald a seismic shift in the cable news landscape, where Ms. Kelly had become the second-most watched host — after Bill O’Reilly of Fox News — and often helped define the national political debate, especially over the last year as Donald J. Trump regularly attacked her, at times in viciously personal terms.
“Over a dozen years ago I started at Fox News in a job that would change my life. Now, I have decided to end my time at FNC, incredibly enriched for the experiences I’ve had. I have agreed to join NBC News, where I will be launching a new daytime show Monday through Friday, along with a Sunday evening news magazine program,” she wrote.
However, many people who responded to Kelly’s Facebook post said they weren’t sad to see her leave Fox, with large numbers of them citing her treatment of President-elect Donald Trump during the campaign.
@megynkelly This is a great day for all Megyn. You're at a Liberal news station and we no longer have to hear your anti-Trump crap on Fox.

@megynkelly I used to think you were great, but then your ego grew enormously, you stopped respecting guest & were condescending and rude.

Is Megyn Kelly going to be less of a racist on NBC?
