Is Megyn Kelly Leaving Fox News?

Fox News host Megyn Kelly may be considering leaving the right wing news network.

Kelly is currently negotiating her contract with Fox News, after working at the network since 2004. Kelly’s contract with Fox News pays her $9 million a year, but that deal was in place before she began hosting her prime time show The Kelly File, which airs at 9PM every weeknight.

Kelly reportedly is negotiating for a deal closer to $15-20 million, which would be similar to the contract the network has with Bill O’Reilly, host of its most watched program, The O’Reilly Factor at 8PM.

In addition to Fox, it has been rumored that Kelly could possibly switch networks and host a show on CNN. Kelly has been sighted speaking to members of CNN staff while she covered the Republican Convention in Cleveland in the summer of 2016.

She recently released a memoir Settle for More, in which she discusses the details of alleged sexual harassment she encountered with Fox News creator and former chairman, Roger Ailes. Kelly alleges that Ailes repeatedly made inappropriate remarks to her and asked her about things like the color of her bra. After a lawsuit from former Fox anchor Gretchen Carlson, Ailes was fired by Fox News and given a multi-million dollar severance package.

Kelly could leave Fox after all the controversy and receive a contract worth millions of dollars, or she could choose to remain at Fox and make a lot of money. She is one of the highest rated hosts on the network, and despite repeatedly slanting the news in a conservative position, remains one of its most popular and visible hosts.

      I agree with you. Fox has several talented, intelligent and beautiful people who could easily replace Kelly.
      One way to find out if you are irreplaceable is to put your finger into a cup of water and remove it. If a hole remains you are irreplaceable. So far I have never met any man or woman like that.

        Never heard that expression before but I like it and won’t forget it.

    Looking quite forward to saying goodbye to Megyn Kelly. As soon as Bill O’Reilly’s show ends, I change channels. Good Riddance, Ms Kelly.

      9:00 p.m. is a great time to do important things like taking out the trash, etc.

    Ever notice that Media with liberal views are never labeled “left wing”? Anybody or media that is expresses conservative views are far right.
    One of the reasons that there is a rebellion in America.

    I watch Fox Five all day, when Meghan Kelly comes on at 9:00pm I turn the channel until Hannity comes on. Now finally I can watch Fox Five at 9:00.
    Goodbye and good luck. You will not be missed by me.

    Fox News Right Wing? Only if you compare it to the rest of the Left Wing media. ABC, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, etc. are nothing but an arm of the Demcrapic Party.

  • Paul Hinson

    Kelly turned out to be nothing more than an opportunity sniffing closet-hiding man-hating immature obsessed skanky female. Her coordination of her book release and interview circuit thinking it would be a way to smear Trump after he would surely lose proves she’s a typical narcissist show boating attention hoe!

    At 7:00, actually at 6:00 p.m. I switch to Charles Payne then Lou Dobbs on FoxBusiness. Both are steady and not shrill – easy to watch and informative.
