TV presenter Megyn Kelly will never return to mainstream media, according to a source close to her.
Kelly, 49, was famously a news anchor at Fox News for 13 years before more recently headlining the ‘Megyn Kelly Today’ show on NBC, which was cancelled under acrimonious circumstances.
As reported by Page Six, a source close to the journalist has said that Kelly – who has since been dabbling in digital media – would not return to a mainstream outlet.
‘There’s no way she’d ever go back to a big corporate … legacy media [outlet],’ the source told Page Six. ‘She loves the authenticity and freedom of having her own direct channel.’
However, other TV insiders noted that after Kelly’s dramatic exit from Fox News in 2017 and her troubled time at NBC – which saw her show cancelled in 2018 after she appeared to defend blackface – she has not been in high demand.
In September, Kelly launched her own ‘Devil May Care Media’ company, and debuted a podcast series the same month.
