CNN Wants Megyn Kelly, Says the Drudge Report

Dec 2, 2016  •  Post A Comment

“CNN President Jeff Zucker is actively perusing Fox star Megyn Kelly to anchor 8 or 9 PM on his network,” reports the Drudge Report.

The story continues,  “‘[Zucker] is moving the Himalayan mountains to get her,’ a top insider explains. ‘But they are tripped up on money. He simply can’t pay her the $20 million a year Fox has on the table.’”

In a follow-up to the Drudge report, Variety writes, “A CNN spokeswoman declined to comment, as did a spokeswoman for Kelly. A Fox News representative could not be reached for immediate comment.

Variety continues, “Finding a slot at CNN for Kelly could require some lineup shuffling. The network recently signed a new deal with Anderson Cooper, who at present anchors two hours a night between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker has recently offered effusive praise for Don Lemon, who has hosted two hours between 10 p.m. and midnight during the election. And then there are all those documentaries and non-fiction series CNN has invested in to use as primetime programming for when the news cycle cools down.”

  1. In the end it always comes down to money, doesn’t it? It doesn’t matter if CNN or FOX are or are not networks of integrity. This is the way it is with humans – EVERYONE has a price where they put morals, principals and integrity aside and sell out to the almighty dollar.

    $20 MILLION DOLLARS?????…really? And the liberal left cries foul at the 1% who make money hand-over-fist for really doing nothing.
