Megyn Kelly after leaving Fox News has signed up with NBC for $15 million and she will debut on NBC with a show which is surely going to gather a lot of attention. After all, she will be interviewing one of the most powerful presidents in the world, Vladimir Putin. The show will air from May.
Megyn passed on Fox Network's $25 million worth offer and joined NBC. This decision may have been affected by the numerous harassment cases that Foxe's big officials have been through lately. Megyn Kelly left the Fox News and will reportedly travel to Russia and have a conversation with Russian president Putin.
The meeting was fixed after NBC News chief Andy Lack made an official visit to Russia and met private officials of Putin. The meeting will be held at St. Petersburg International Economic Forum where Kelly will moderate a session economic forum which will be held from June 1st to Third June.
