Megyn Kelly Says Goodbye To FOX: "I Am Very Grateful To NBC"

Megyn Kelly made it official Tuesday night on her FOX News program <i>The Kelly File</i> that she will be leaving the network for NBC News. Kelly said she will remain at the network until the end of the week before she moves to NBC. Kelly announced she will be doing a daytime program for NBC as well as political coverage. She also expressed her admiration for the peacock network and said she was "grateful for the opportunity." Kelly's Tuesday night monologue: <blockquote>MEGYN KELLY: Finally tonight, a personal and professional note from me to you. After more than a dozen years at FOX News, I have decided to pursue a new challenge. This is a tough decision for me because I love this show. Our staff, my crew, my colleagues here at FOX, and you, all of you. Those who write me the lovely hand-written notes asking me about my kids, and even those who very rarely complain on Twitter about our coverage after a show or a presidential debate. Now, I don't actually know most of you so it perhaps it's not actually be true love but it's the kind of feeling that makes one feel connected to another human being. And that after all is why I believe we're here -- human connection. The truth is, I need more of that in my life. And in particular when it comes to my children, who are seven, five, and three. So I'll be leaving FOX News at the week's end and starting a new adventure -- joining the journalists at NBC News who I deeply admire. I'll be anchoring a daytime show there along with a Sunday night newsmagazine, and you'll see me there on the big nights too for politics and such. I am very grateful to NBC for this opportunity and I am deeply thankful to FOX News for the wonderful 12 years I've had here. I have grown up here and have been given every chance a young reporter could ever ask for. The Murdoch family has been kind and good to me at every turn and my colleagues are like a second family to me. So, I will miss them and this show and you. And I hope our human connection continues. I'll be at over a different line. Thank you for watching. With love. </blockquote>
