What a glorious day for a bulk of conservatives who grew tired of watching the otherwise talented Megyn Kelly slam President-elect Donald Trump throughout the primary and general election season.
She’ll undoubtedly have a lucrative career over at NBC — a place she’ll fit in, politically speaking — and short of accidentally crossing the NBC channel with my remote, I’ll probably never see her again.
And I’m ok with that. DailyCaller has the story:
Megyn Kelly is leaving Fox News to take on a broad role at NBC News.
The Fox News star will host a daytime news show and anchor a Sunday night show, as well as regularly take part in breaking news and special event coverage at the network, the network announced in a statement Tuesday. The amount she was offered to move to NBC has not been disclosed.
Kelly was reportedly offered more than $20 million by Fox to stay on when her current contract expires, an offer other networks vying for her indicated they could not match. But she has hinted in recent interviews and in her new book, “Settle for More,” that she wouldn’t decide based on the highest bid; the broad role offered at NBC appears to have sweetened the deal.
One person briefed on Kelly’s discussions with NBC told The New York Times the network chairman, Andrew Lack, won her over by starting negotiations with an open-ended question about what she was seeking rather than immediately making some kind of offer.
