‘The Kelly File’ is almost over… let the countdown begin!
Megyn Kelly turned down the exorbitant $20 million contract offered by FOX News and is heading to more liberal pastures over at NBC.
A publicist for the host of The Kelly File told CNN Money that Kelly’s final day at Fox News will be Friday, though she will not be able to move over to NBC until her current contract expires in July.
There has been no word yet from Fox News about which host will replace Kelly next week and if there will be a new program or the show will be renamed The File.
News Corp CEO and Chairman Rupert Murdoch released a statement with some kind words for Kelly after learning the news, saying: ‘We hope she enjoys tremendous success in her career and wish her and her family all the best.’
…In a statement released on Tuesday, NBC revealed that Kelly will anchor a one hour daytime program running Monday through Friday on the network, along with a Sunday evening news magazine show.
She will also be involved in the network’s political and breaking news coverage.
