‘Megyn Kelly Today’ Staffer Reportedly Fired After Alleging ‘Toxic and Demeaning’ Work Environment

“A top staffer on Megyn Kelly’s show has been fired after claiming there is a ‘toxic and demeaning’ environment on set, rife with bullying and ‘abusive treatment,'” The New York Post’s Page Six reports. “Kevin Bleyer was fired as a writer from ‘Megyn Kelly Today’ this week after complaining that Kelly’s two top execs, Jackie Levin and Christine Cataldi, were bullying lower-level members of staff.”

The report notes that Kelly “has made fighting abuse her personal crusade. Plus, in the wake of Matt Lauer’s firing, NBC ordered all staff to report workplace bad behavior, supposedly without fear or reprisal.”

The story reports that Bleyer sent an email to human resources at NBC News, “and was fired shortly after.”

Bleyer’s memo was published by the U.K. publication The Daily Mail. In it, Bleyer writes:, “I’m sad to say … the executive incompetence continues — as does the dysfunctional management, abusive treatment, maddening hypocrisy, staggering inefficiencies, acidic and deficient communication, and relentless scapegoating. Jackie Levin persists in creating a toxic and demeaning environment, and Christine Cataldi enables and reinforces it.”

The Post adds that Bleyer “claims Cataldi regularly calls her assistant ‘an idiot,’ and when he offered suggestions for the show, Levin called him a ‘f–king whiner.’”
