Posted on 01/15/2018 2:48:33 PM PST by Kaslin
Megyn Kelly will be staying home next month when her fellow NBC stars travel to South Korea for the Olympics raising new questions about the standing of NBC News highest paid star.
The Olympics is a command performance for any high-profile star or executive at the Peacock Network, which has paid nearly $1 billion to broadcast the 2018 Pyeongchang Games in the United States. While its unclear if Kelly made the decision to stay home herself, its unusual nonetheless.
NBC traditionally sends its entire panoply of news stars to the games, and true to form, both the Today show and Nightly News will broadcast live from Pyeongchang for the duration of the games, focusing their news programs almost entirely on games coverage. NBC executives, as well as head honchos from parent company Comcast, also travel to the games to hobnob, attend receptions and watch sporting events.
Fox News has confirmed, however, that Kelly, who makes about $23 million a year, will not join her fellow stars in South Korea. Instead, her troubled 9 a.m. hour of Today will broadcast Olympics coverage from its usual studio in New Yorks Rockefeller Center, according to TVNewser.

Oh, the tears...
Yep, she's crying all the way to the bank.
Funny. NBC keeps their highest paid star, MeAgain at home.
Embarrassment over Megyn Kelly.
Leave it at that.
The first Olympics in a long time without Lauer sexually assaulting the newsreaderettes and female producers & interns. Maybe “Migraine” Kelly felt it wasn’t worth it without the NBC Rapist there.
The blood bank?
Maybe... SK said they don’t want her at the Olympics.
23 million? For what?
She’s developed some ahemmm...effective negotiating skills over the years.
From my post at FOX News, “Sorry Megyn, your 15 minutes have expired. Enjoy your new found and richly deserved anonymity. “
So very many smart women (and men) out there.
So many very stupid ones (of both sexes, obviously).
At least the latter have good possibilities with the MSM.
And the Democrat Party.
Is d!ckhead Bob Cost-us going to get another Botox shot for this Olympics?
So cool the Last time he did.
She is getting rich while becoming anonymous...
So it’s true about the old. Teenage saying...P__ out or get out
Never made 25% of that in my entire 35+ years of employment..........
And here I thought it was only sports teams that wasted that kind of money of alleged “star” players.
Yeah, that's why she's getting a 2.6 percent tax cut, not a deduction, a TAX CUT! Why do people who make $23 million a year need a tax cut? This smells like Bull Crap.
Good question.......For what they provide, which is the good face in front of a camera and the ability to read a teleprompter, the max they should make is maybe $35,000 per year........
They make more in one year than a hundred years I could have made when I was working.........
