Published Jan 03, 2017Veteran Fox News reporter Megyn Kelly went from telling stories to becoming the story during last year's American presidential race, igniting a very public feud with Donald Trump after calling him out on his behaviour towards women.
Kelly's contract with Fox News expires this year, and she's just revealed that she'll be leaving the network for a new gig. Kelly has signed a deal for an "expanded role" at NBC, where she will anchor both a daily, one-hour daytime news show and a Sunday evening program, in addition to contributing to breaking news, politics and special events coverage.
Kelly announced the move via Twitter today (January 3), describing herself as "incredibly enriched for the experiences I've had" and crediting her time at Fox with teaching her "so much about what really matters."

Kelly worked as a corporate litigator before shifting into journalism with her first job at Fox News in 2004. She recently released a memoir titled Settle for More.
