Megyn Kelly: How I battled sexual harassment at Fox and a year of Trump trolls, then settled for more at NBC
Megyn Kelly was already a rising star at Fox News when she hit the big time by taking on a Presidential candidate named Donald Trump. Then, we learned Kelly had been sexually harassed by Fox News CEO Roger Ailes. He was fired — the first volley in a national reckoning. Kelly left for NBC News, where she now hosts the third hour of the Today Show. It’s a departure for the former lawyer. At Fox, she faced criticism for being too outspoken and prosecutorial. At NBC, critics say she’s too soft. For this episode of “Success! How I Did It,” Business Insider’s US Editor-in-Chief Alyson Shontell interviewed Megyn Kelly at BI’s annual IGNITION conference. They spoke just hours after Kelly’s colleague and longtime Today Show host Matt Lauer was fired for alleged sexual harassment. Subscribe to “Success!
