Megyn Kelly May Be Leaving Fox News Too

Earlier today longtime Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren abruptly quit the network less than an hour after news broke that former anchor Gretchen Carlson will be paid $20M to settle her sexual harassment suit. And now this:

Would Ailes’ ouster or the settlement have been possible without what has been reported as Kelly’s quiet support of Carlson? We may never know, but if the reports that she came forward with her own stories of harassment are true, we can wonder if she did it knowing her time at Fox was coming to a close.

Deadline is now exclusively reporting that Kelly has hired a publicist of her own who does not work under the Fox umbrella, which certainly gives credence to the rumors that the network’s star has been eyeing a move away from FNC as her contract draws to an end.
