Back in January, Megyn Kelly shocked her fans by abruptly leaving Fox News to sign a deal with NBC News. Since then, she has been forced to stay out of the public eye, as she was still bound by her Fox contract.
Now, however, it appears Kelly is free to do as she pleases.
Variety reported that a source said that Kelly is now free from her contract with Fox and can appear on NBC whenever she pleases. This came as a big surprise, as her contract was not set to expire until July. However, the source said Kelly finally finalized her separation from Fox this week, allowing her to break the contract.
Kelly is expected to be given a new morning program slated to air at either 9 a.m. or 10 a.m. that will take up an hour previously allocated to NBC’s flagship “Today” program. Kelly’s show will not be affiliated with the “Today” franchise.
Kelly will have her work cut out for her at her new network, as many of her conservative fans feel betrayed by both her abandonment of Fox and her anti-Trump stances. Meanwhile, liberals will always look at her with disdain due to her past at Fox News. This leaves it up in the air as to who will actually tune in to Kelly’s new show…
