Posted on 03/10/2017 6:30:25 AM PST by COUNTrecount
Megyn Kelly grew tired of combative hard news reporting and now wants to help people the way Oprah did on her new NBC show, sources tell Page Six.
After signing a deal with NBC worth between $12 million and $15 million, Kellys plans for her new show have been shrouded in secrecy.
NBC brass are interviewing executive producers in the hopes that Kelly will debut in September at either 9 or 10a.m. in front of a live studio audience.
A source told us, There was a lot of tough news to report on her show at Fox News. A lot of combative interviewing, going after people. Doing that every night was difficult. Megyn feels she has more to offer. She wants to help people the way Oprah did, and do something more positive. Shell be focusing on issues and bringing in real people as well as celebrities. Plus, she has a sense of humor and she wants to use that.
Kelly told Variety in 2015, Barbara Walters has retired, Diane Sawyer left her anchor role. Oprah has moved to the OWN network and is doing a different thing now. So why not me? The source added, Megyn will have the Sunday night show on NBC to scratch that itch. Thats where youll see the big interviews and stories.

Stick your finger in an electric outlet Megyn. Then you might make it.
Megan Smelly is bleeding out of her wherever again
She’d better start hitting the buffet then.
She needs to gain weight and get a “special” lady friend.
Feelings of grandeur?
It took Oprah 20 years to become obnoxious and full of herself to the point that no one could bear watching her on tv. It took Megyn about 6 months. I think she’ll be shelved to Inside Edition within the year.
Me-again Kelley, She has delusions of mediocrity.................
Imagine Megyn giving a car to everyone in the audience....
She’s the new Jerry Springer.
And to work less, sleep later, spoend more time with family, and get paid more. Totally unexpected.
she blew up on the GOP average American.
Yeah, her show won’t survive without them
Lol. Crude but amusing. Megan's blondness OUGHT to get her SOME kind of rating. Heck, that IS the old-fashioned way: couch casting.
She could get stinking rich and BUY her own network.
Any bets on how long she lasts before NBC cancels her contract?
The trajectory of her career reflects the exact moment she decided to be a Trump Slayer. All down hill from there. HA!
Start eating more... a lot more.
The LSM will never accept her non-alternate lifestyle, and she's nuked her bridges with other media.
Me-again is definitely toast.
She's working on it...
I’d love to see her gain 80 pounds and grow an afro.
