Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly will leave the network and take a job at NBC News, The New York Times reports.
Kelly was one of Fox News's most popular anchors, second only to Bill O'Reilly. At NBC, she will host her own daytime news show, anchor a Sunday in-depth nightly news show and be part of the network's special programming and event coverage, the Times reports.
She posted the following statement on Twitter.
Kelly was further thrust into the national spotlight after repeated criticism by President-elect Donald Trump on the campaign trail. She also alleged that former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes had sexually harassed her.
Money, money, money
Her contract with Fox News does not officially end until this summer, the Times reports. Fox News had originally offered her more than $20 million a year to remain at the network, and rival networks at the time said they could not match that salary.
She also recently released a memoir, entitled "Settle for More," which launched further criticisms of Fox News leadership.
