After feuding with President Trump in the 2016 election, Megyn Kelly’s fame skyrocketed.
She made a fateful decision to cash in and leave Fox News for NBC where she never truly fit in.
But now Megyn Kelly could be poised for a major comeback after dropping this bombshell announcement.
Aside from speaking out on social media from time to time, Megyn Kelly has kept a low profile after NBC fired her in 2018 for comments justifying kids using blackface for Halloween costumes.
Don’t feel too bad for Kelly though – in the end she walked away with her full $69 million payout stipulated in her initial contract.
Talk about a paid vacation.
But now, Megyn Kelly could be poised for a major comeback as she announced she’s launching her own media company, Devil May Care Media, and podcast.
“Some news: I am launching a podcast this month. It’ll be free & available pretty much everywhere. No B.S. No agenda. No corporate overlords. Should be fun!” Kelly posted on social media.
Kelly says her podcast would depart from the typical liberal media framing of the day’s issues.
“So many in the media are terrified to talk about difficult issues in a way that does not conform with what the perpetually outraged scolds want to hear or what their corporate brass demand, but don’t expect that from me,” Kelly told The Hill.
“With Devil May Care Media, I answer only to my audience and my conscience. Those who like what I have to say will find the experience deeply rewarding. Those who don’t can look elsewhere,” Kelly said in a statement. “The point is to give the audience authentic content that goes places where traditional media can’t or — more often — won’t. It’s a great challenge that will reconnect me with my audience and I’m excited to get started.”
“There will be no safe spaces here. There will be spaces that challenge you, make you think, help you understand, stimulate your intellect and help build resiliency,” Kelly continued. “The vast majority of Americans are tougher than people think – they can handle sharp, compelling discussions about tough issues.”
With the Fake News Media treating Biden with kid gloves, Kelly’s podcast launch could be timed perfectly for success if she refuses to do the same.
Landing either an interview with Trump or Biden would be the sort of stellar interview she needs to comeback from her media exile.
