Rumors are swirling over Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly and her future.
Kelly’s contract with Fox expires in the summer of 2017, although the network has already offered her an extension at $20 million per year.
Even so, per Sarah Ellison at Vanity Fair, “Within the last month, according to a person familiar with the discussions, ABC has renewed, and perhaps sweetened, its effort to woo Kelly.”
Kelly spokesperson Leslee Dart replied saying no solid offers have been made by ABC.
“When I asked about the possibility of an offer, a Disney-ABC Television spokesman told me, ‘As much as we appreciate and admire Megyn Kelly’s talents, this is simply not true. There has never been an offer of any job, and therefore there is nothing that could be sweetened. End of story.’”
CNN chief Jeff Zucker also is attempting to bring Kelly to his news network, according to a recent headline on the Drudge Report. Kelly herself responded to this story on twitter that people shouldn’t believe rumors about her until they hear it from her directly.
