Ever since Megyn Kelly's acrimonious exit from NBC in 2018, there have been questions about what she'll do next. Will she head to a major network? Maybe return to Fox News, where she became a household name?
The quick answer is no.
Of the veteran newswoman, a friend told Page Six, "There's no way she'd ever go back to a big corporate … legacy media [outlet]."
Since leaving NBC amid a blackface scandal, Megyn has been trying her hand at digital media. She launched her Devil May Care Media company in September and debuted a podcast that same month.
This is where her heart lies right now.
"She loves the authenticity and freedom of having her own direct channel," the source said.
The beginning of the end of Megyn's NBC tenure occurred on Oct. 23, 2018, when she received huge backlash for saying it was fair game to wear "blackface" for Halloween "as long as it's a character."
When Megyn was officially fired a few days later, she was a little more than halfway through a fully-guaranteed three-year contract worth $69 million. NBC eventually paid her out the remaining sum — a reported $30 million. She was also prohibited from saying anything disparaging about the network.
