The lawyer turned–TV journalist left the Fox News in 2017, after 12 years. Since then she has been working on NBC’s morning show, Megyn Kelly Today.

The switch

Last year NBC convinced her to quit her 9 pm show on the Fox News and join their 9 am a show. It was one of the industry’s most memorable switches in recent times.

And after 6 months into the show, Kelly herself has admitted to Variety that she is still trying to figure out what form the show is supposed to take and that things aren’t going as expected.

“In my experience, it takes a show about a year to find its sea legs, to figure out who it is, and that’s true of me too. In morning television, it takes a while to change an audience’s viewing habits, and so I have to earn the trust of the audience, and I’m willing to work for it.”

Megyn KellyRecent features

In recent weeks she hosted a group of transgender teens who came out on her show; interviewed a Stamford, Conn., firefighter about finding the bodies of children; and talked to a man who decided to forgive a son who killed the other members of their family.

Kelly also interviewed mothers of severely disturbed children. Their sons killed animals, terrorized siblings, or sought out child pornography. the mothers were in a problem as they could find no help from psychiatrists or social workers.

“I feel like if we do enough of those shows over time, people will understand they can turn to us for meaningful, respectful, strong storytelling. We are putting chips in the bank with our audience.”

According to a 2016 report in The Wall Street Journal, Fox News paid her $15 million last year.

“Maybe there was some initial expectation that this was going to go through the stratosphere, but I think patience is the optimal term,” says Dave Sederbaum, senior vice president of video activation at media-buying agency Carat. “It has been slowly but surely progressing,” he adds, and advertisers in “Today” have continued to support the show.

The beauty with brains added that she is grateful she has been given a long runway to develop a relationship with viewers. Kelly further adds the show is not going to be perfect on Day one and they are,t going to be in first place on Day Two.

Feud with Jane Fondas

During an interview with Jane Fonda in September, Kelly had asked her about plastic surgery and Fondas blistered. But in January, she revived the controversy during other media appearances. The response from Kelly was forceful.

“She attacked me repeatedly when we launched the show and I let it go, over and over. And then she renewed it in very personal terms. It became clear to me she was trading on it. I am trying to model for my children – all three of them, but especially my daughter. Being a lady doesn’t always mean ignoring attacks. Sometimes it does mean throwing a sharp elbow to stand up for yourself. I feel that’s what I did – and she hasn’t attacked me since.”

She also wants to work on lighter topics once in a while. She will occasionally be doing meet and greet with reality stars from the “Real Housewives” series on corporate sibling Bravo.

“I insist that the world come to understand that no woman must choose between being strong and being fun, being tough and being liked. It can all happen at once. You can be feminine and you can be strong. Stand by.”
