Megyn Kelly has spent the past year alienating Fox News fans with her frequent attacks on Donald Trump as she tried to appeal to more mainstream audiences. Now, it looks like this might have been part of her masterplan all along, as she is suggesting that she may be leaving the network.
Kelly reportedly told The Washington Post that she has “great options” when her contract expires in July of 2017. She added that she is “humbled” to have received interest from other television networks before her contract expires.
“I don’t see myself as some television star, I see myself as a girl from Albany. So it’s a great business; it’s a dream job,” Kelly said, according to Brietbart. “And I’m very glad that I have chance to work here, whether it’s at Fox or another channel. Hard to get a job in TV news, so I haven’t lost sight of that.”
Kelly told reporters that though she has received a “generous offer” from her current boss, Lachlan Murdoch, which is said to be around $20 million, her next deal will be “all about greater balance.” The Kelly File host said her current work-life balance at Fox “is not good enough” and that she wants to be free to spend more time with her children.
“I want to see my kids for dinner, I want to put them down at night, I want to see their soccer games after school,” Kelly said. “I want to get to know the parents who take their kids to some of these events, and not all the time. We all feel that to some extent, but my problem in my current role is I see them in the morning and . . . I take them to school but unless there’s a school event that I can attend, I might not see them at all for the rest of the day until they’re sleeping in their beds at night.”
This comes after a source at Fox told Breitbart News that employees within the network are “sick” of the ongoing drama surrounding the anchor.
“Everybody in the building is sick of it. We absolutely can’t stand it anymore,” the source said. “Go. We don’t care. Leave. You want to be friends with Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon? Go to CNN. Have fun.”
