Former Fox News anchor Megan Kelly has been spending a little time out of the spotlight. The official story is that it’s because she wants to spend evenings at home, with her family, but the chain of events would lead one to believe it was a little more forced.
Kelly and President Trump clashed in a big way while he was running for office last year. The President even refused to have interactions with her at one point. She eventually became so unpopular that she left Fox News to sign a contract with NBC back in January. That’s why it came as a surprise this week when she resurfaced this week on a vacation with her family.

This comes after it was revealed that Kelly would be given her own hour of morning television that would not fall under the Today show brand. Instead, it would be a new brand and would cancel the fourth hour of the program altogether.
“I’ve seen her on morning shows. She’s multi-talented and would fit right in [at NBC],” said Today show anchor Matt Lauer. “She’s a remarkable broadcaster and journalist, a real force.”
Kelly had reportedly been wanting to leave Fox News for awhile.
“Megyn feels she has more to offer. She wants to help people the way Oprah did, and do something more positive,” a source close to the situation said. “She’ll be focusing on issues and bringing in real people as well as celebrities. Plus, she has a sense of humor and she wants to use that.”
So, is Kelly going to be giving out cars now? In my opinion the only thing she had going for her was her backbone and unwavering staunch opinion. Given, it was incorrect, but at least she was loyal to it. Maybe we just count our blessings that no one is going to try and take her seriously as a journalist any more. So here’s to the new blond Oprah; may your show be short and your non-compete be long.
