One of the biggest guessing games in TV news has ended. And that was where Megyn Kelly would find herself once her Fox contract was up.

She’s making the jump to NBC where she will host a daytime news show and one on Sunday evenings. It’s unclear what Kelly will earn in hew new job, but Fox reportedly offered her 20 million dollars a year to stay.

In her recent book, Kelly wrote about the harassment allegations — including her own — against former Fox News head Roger Ailes. She also wrote that whatever network offered her the most money might not be the place she ended up.
