Megyn Kelly is Making a Switch

Yesterday, Fox News host Megyn Kelly announced that she is leaving the network to go to NBC instead. According to Fox News her last day on air is Friday. Her motivation for making the move? According to Kelly, one factor was that she’ll now be working during the day, and will have more time to spend with her three young children.

She will play several roles at NBC, including hosting a daytime program and a Sunday evening news show. Kelly was with Fox News for over 12 years and became one of TV journalism’s biggest voices, especially during the 2016 presidential campaign when she sparred with President-elect Donald Trump.

This will probably be a hard blow for Fox News, after months of drama surrounding its founding chairman Roger Ailes. Multiple women, including Kelly, have accused Ailes of sexual harassment. Ailes denied all of the accusations but eventually resigned.
