The AP News network is reporting Megyn Kelly is leaving Fox News for a new role on NBC.  The move was confirmed by Kelly’s publicist, Leslee Dart. Megyn Kelly arrived at Fox twelve years ago when she was just a start up reporter. Her time has been marked by upheavals at her network, and personal attacks while Trump while he was on the campaign trail.

When Kelly returned from maternity leave and launched The Kelly File on October 7,2013 she has blazed a ratings trail, outdrawing both major cable competitors at the time—MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and CNN’s Piers Morgan—combined. That is no great feat since neither of them have ever had much of an audience.  Her audience the 25-to-54 demographic is crucial to advertisers. Kelly has even occasionally beaten the Big Daddy of cable news, Bill O’Reilly, in that key demo. She’s quick to credit the big push O’Reilly has given her as the lead-in to her show, and she knows her debut was marvelously timed, coming on the eve of Congress freaking out over raising the nation’s debt ceiling, the budgetary standoff that led to the 16-day-long government shutdown, and the epic meltdown over Obama-care and the Healthcare.gov website.

There is no doubt her own meltdown over Donald Trump’s reaction to her attack in that first debate didn’t hurt her. Kelly seemed to thrive through it all. She played the woman card, then the victim card, and finally she played the media card.

It was always obvious to me Kelly was not a conservative, and now she is finally where she belongs. I won’t watch her and I won’t miss her on Fox either. Good riddance.
