Megyn Kelly’s leaving FOX for NBC. I would have been SO disappointed a year ago. But not today.
“Her net worth is $ 15 million; she draws a reportedly impressive base salary of $270,000, taking her annual package to $9 million. Her great looks along with her tongue–in-cheek sharp takes on any social issue has made her the star in her profession. It has been reported that Megyn Kelly may leave Fox News if she is not given a higher salary which compares to the likes of Bill O’Reilly who earns a salary of $18 million per year.”
Though it might have irked me that O’Reilly was making double my salary I’d have been mighty happy with $9 million a year, particularly if I was able to share my own opinions, hoping to clarify and edify my viewers, and believed in the more conservative FOX cause.
Here’s what she’ll apparently be doing: “Kelly will become anchor of a new one hour daytime program that she will develop closely with NBC News colleagues. The show will air Monday through Friday at a time to be announced in the coming months…. As part of the multi-year agreement, Kelly also will anchor a new Sunday evening news magazine show, and will contribute to NBC’s breaking news coverage as well as the network’s political and special events coverage.”
“Kelly also will anchor a new Sunday evening news magazine show”…How many times have I said she wants to be the next Barbara Walters?
I’ve seen her dump Conservatives in the mud but even I have to admit she does stand up for them when the undeniable Conservative truth on various subjects doesn’t make the mainstream press, so, for that, I have some hope. I got some blow back here when I said that FOX watchers deserve a ‘safe’ Conservative place to hear the opinions we share, plus more opinions we do NOT share than (literally) any other cable channel, which helps us see more clearly and make our own decisions. I got to thinking about it the other day and feel strongly that while MSNBC and CNN can spout their leanings, FOX should be able to do so. I said “we deserve it,” then, at least as much as lefties do, and I feel it even more today.
Our friend/commenter John Berger brought up a good question…They haven’t released who’ll take her treasured timeslot….
WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE ON FOX AT 9pm Eastern, 6pm Pacific?
