Megyn Kelly 'leaving Fox News'

Megyn Kelly 'leaving Fox News'”

She will launch a daytime program as well as a Sunday evening news magazine show, and be part of the network's coverage of major political and breaking-news events.

NBC News chairman Andrew Lack is seen as having convinced Kelly to leave Fox News, where her contract expires later this year. "She's demonstrated tremendous skill and poise, and we're lucky to have her".

Fox News said Tuesday Kelly would end her 12-year run at the network on January 6. "Now, I have chose to end my time at FNC, incredibly enriched for the experiences I've had".

In an announcement, NBC says that Kelly will host a new weekday program, and will also host a weekly news magazine show on Sunday nights. In her tweet on Tuesday, Kelly said she was deeply grateful to Fox News, its leaders and Fox's viewers, "who have taught me so much about what really matters".

NBC News has now confirmed that it's true.

Why? Tricia McCauley missing actress found dead in auto . Suspect arrested
DC Police have arresed a man in connection with the death of 46-year-old Tricia McCauley . "Hang on to each other", he wrote. To all of her D.C. family, I know she truly thought of you that way, thank you for being there for her all these years.

Ailes and Fox parted ways in July after several other women accused the former chief of sexual harassment, with the network and former anchor Gretchen Carlson reaching a $20 million settlement over Ailes' purported harassment. Trump criticized her on stage and later said in an interview that Kelly had "blood coming out of her wherever" during the debate. News lured her away from Fox by offering a broad new role, according to the Times. Kelly announced the move in a short statement posted on her social media accounts. NBC has not replied to comment about the financial details of the contract. She repeatedly sparred with president-elect Donald Trump, punctuated by a contentious showdown at the first GOP debate, in which she confronted him about his insulting remarks about women. There were reports she had been entertaining overtures from CNN and ABC.

So, she's moving onward and upward in the newscast world, leaving Fox News' second-most-watched program and arriving at NBC where she is preparing to take the helm of a variety of programs.

Kelly's departure from Fox News is just the latest shakeup at the network.

No word yet on who might take over Kelly's prime-time spot on Fox News.

Although Kelly's questioning style has generated anger among Trump supporters, the episode (and Trump's subsequent comment that some perceived as referring to Kelly menstruating) raised Kelly's profile and placed her in hotter demand.
