On January 3, 2017, Megyn Kelly announced her departure from Fox News. Kelly was a popular host on the network, and her departure leaves a big hole at Fox. Kelly is the second high-profile departure from Fox News in the past year, following the departure of Greta Van Susteren in September 2016.
Reasons for leaving
It’s been a little more than a week since Megyn Kelly’s dramatic departure from Fox News, and the circumstances surrounding her firing are still somewhat murky. But what we do know is that Kelly’s departure was hastened by a number of factors, both personal and professional.
On the personal front, Kelly was reportedly unhappy with the way Fox News was handling the claims of sexual harassment against then-chairman Roger Ailes. She was also said to be upset over the network’s coverage of the 2016 presidential election, feeling that she had been sidelined in favor of more pro-Trump voices.
Professionally, Kelly was reportedly unhappy with her contract, which was up for renewal in 2017. She was said to be seeking a significant raise, and when Fox News refused to meet her demands, she began exploring other options. In the end, Kelly decided to move to NBC, where she will host a daytime talk show and anchor a Sunday night news program.
New job at NBC
Megyn Kelly is an American journalist and former corporate defense attorney. She is currently the host of her live-daytime talk show Megyn Kelly Today on NBC News. In 2016, she earned widespread media attention after being involved in a series of exchanges with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump during the GOP primaries, which led to her receiving death threats.
Kelly was born and raised in suburban Albany, New York, and graduated from Syracuse University in 1992. She later worked as a lawyer for Jones Day in Chicago before moving to New York City to work for the law firm Cahill Gordon & Reindel LLP. In 2003, she joined Fox News as a general assignment reporter. In 2010, she became the host of America Live, a daytime news program on Fox News. From 2013 to 2017, she hosted The Kelly File, a weekday evening news program on Fox News Channel (FNC).
On January 3, 2017, it was announced that Kelly would be leaving FNC to join NBC News. Her new contract with NBC included a three-year deal worth $69 million and a morning talk show called Megyn Kelly Today, which premiered on September 25, 2017.
After years of being one of Fox News’ top names, Bill O’Reilly was recently let go from the network. This came after sexual harassment allegations were made against him. While he has denied these allegations, it seems that Fox News felt it was time for him to go.
Reasons for leaving
After years of allegations of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior, Bill O’Reilly was finally pushed out of Fox News.
While O’Reilly has denied any wrongdoing, the mounting accusations seemed to be too much for Fox News, and the network announced on Wednesday that O’Reilly would not be returning to the network.
Here are some of the reasons why O’Reilly is no longer with Fox News:
-Allegations of sexual harassment: O’Reilly has been accused of sexual harassment by multiple women, including former Fox News employees.
-Settlements: In order to keep the accusations from going public, O’Reilly and Fox News have reportedly paid out millions of dollars in settlements.
-Advertiser boycotts: In the wake of the revelations about the settlements, a number of advertisers pulled their ads from “The O’Reilly Factor.”
-Pressure from within Fox News: As the scandal continued to grow, it’s reported that there was internal pressure at Fox News for O’Reilly to be removed from the network.
New job at CBS
It has been announced that Bill O’Reilly has been given a new job at CBS News. This comes after he left Fox News amid sexual harassment allegations.
CBS News President David Rhodes said in a statement that O’Reilly “is one of the most accomplished news anchors in the country” and that he is “an incredible asset to our team.”
O’Reilly’s new role at CBS will be as a contributor to the network’s “60 Minutes” program. He is set to make his debut on the program this Sunday.
Greta Van Susteren
On Thursday, April 6, 2017, Greta Van Susteren announced she was leaving the Fox News Channel after 14 years. The popular television host had been with the network since 2002, most recently hosting the show “On the Record” weeknights at 7pm/6c. Van Susteren’s departure from Fox News comes as a surprise to many, as she has been a staple on the network and a trusted voice for conservatives.
Reasons for leaving
Greta Van Susteren, who recently left Fox News after working for the network for almost 15 years, has opened up about her departure.
In an interview with Variety, Van Susteren said that she was ready for a change and that “it just seemed like it was time.”
When asked if she had any regrets about leaving Fox News, Van Susteren said that she didn’t have any and that she was “grateful” for the opportunities she had at the network.
As for her future plans, Van Susteren said that she is open to a lot of different things but that she is not sure what she will do next.
New job at MSNBC
Greta Van Susteren, who recently left Fox News, has taken a new job at MSNBC.
MSNBC announced on Thursday that Van Susteren would be joining the network as a contributor.
Van Susteren spent 14 years at Fox News, most recently as the host of “On the Record.” She left the network earlier this month amid reports that she was unhappy with her contract renegotiations.
“I am thrilled to start my next chapter at MSNBC,” Van Susteren said in a statement. “This is a new day and I am expanding my voice.”
MSNBC president Phil Griffin said he was “thrilled” to have Van Susteren on board.
“Greta is a well-respected journalist who has been a trusted voice for many years,” he said. “We’re excited to have her on our team as we continue to build MSNBC’s lineup with strong analysts and commentators.”
