According to an exclusive from the Drudge Report, current Fox News star anchor Megyn Kelly is being pursued heavily by Fox’s rival network CNN.
It’s being reported to Drudge, by a “top insider,” that CNN President Jeff Zucker is fighting hard to bring Kelly, whose contract at Fox ends in July of 2017, over to his network in order to anchor the 8 or 9 PM time slot.
The toughest obstacle for Zucker however, seems to be the payday the move may require as Kelly currently has a $20 million dollar offer on the table from her current home network.
“He 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.”
A top source close to the action describes how Megyn would be an immediate international star at CNN. “It’s the opportunity of lifetime.”“She could even star in a movie at WARNER BROS.”
