During her time at Fox News, Megyn Kelly was known for being extremely unpopular with her coworkers. Now, it’s been revealed that she’s arguably disliked even more at her new job at NBC News.
Western Journalism reported that sources say that many at NBC are “outraged” over Kelly’s “divalike” personality. The former “Kelly File” host is currently traveling the nation on a five-day tour to visit network affiliates, and she’s making the trip on a charter jet while accompanied by an entourage that includes a hairstylist, makeup artist, publicist, and security detail.
“People are outraged over her divalike ways,” one network source said. “They wonder, ‘When does NBC stop throwing money at her?’”
Kelly’s time at NBC so far has been rocky to say the least, as her show Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly was taken off the air early due to severely low ratings. Now, all Kelly’s eggs are in her 9am morning show Megyn Kelly Today, which will premiere on September 25. If that show flops, Kelly’s days at NBC are numbered, and sources indicate that she’s very aware of that.
“She’s working sunup to sundown every day — some days, two cities a day,” one NBC insider said, adding that Kelly has been “shooting multiple promos and pieces.”
