Megyn Kelly will leave Fox News for a new role at NBC News, which was first reported by the New York Times and confirmed by TheWrap.
Kelly — who has been with Fox News for 12 years — hosts “The Kelly File,” which is among the most-watched shows on cable TV.

Trump eventually skipped a debate over the ordeal, but the two made up and Kelly interviewed Trump for a special on Fox broadcast. Meanwhile, Ailes has since stepped down in disgrace after numerous women, including Kelly, have come forward with accusations of sexual assault.
NBC will announce the new deal “imminently,” according to the Times. She will start at NBC “later this year,” according to CNN.
Fox News reportedly offered Kelly $20 million a year to stay.
