Megyn Kelly: NBC job not ‘intellectually stimulating’

Television host Megyn Kelly said that her previous NBC gig was not “intellectually stimulating,” which is part of why she left.

In an interview with Business Insider published Tuesday, Kelly compared her time at NBC News to her first marriage, saying she doesn’t have any regrets and referring to it as “part of the journey that gets you to where you are.”

“I had this soaring career at Fox that was great by any measure, but I was miserable at home. It was too stressful, too much time away from my family and my kids, and then I overcorrected at NBC by going too soft,” Kelly told Insider.

“To be perfectly honest, the job wasn’t intellectually stimulating for me, and now I feel like I have the best of both worlds. I’m fired up and making a difference,” she continued.

Kelly and SiriusXM announced Tuesday that she will host a daily radio program starting Sept. 7 called “The Megyn Kelly Show.” 

Kelly became a star on Fox News but left to join NBC News in 2017, hosting her own hour of the “Today” show, before she left a year later amid controversy after she commented it used to be OK to wear blackface on Halloween.
