Fox News superstar host Megyn Kelly told The New York Times magazine that she would have gladly taken a job with MSNBC if they had scooped her up before Fox News Channel.
In an interview with Jim Rutenberg published Wednesday, Kelly said that if MSNBC had called her before Fox News did in 2004, she wouldn’t have hesitated to join the liberal channel.
“I’d have done O.K. there, too,” she told the Times.
But Kelly, whose show reportedly takes in 2.8 million, or four times as many viewers as MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, said elsewhere that Fox News had always been the only place she wanted to be.
Right now, with the Times reporting that “The Kelly File” enjoys highest-rated nonsports program in its time slot, the host seems comfortable at Fox News.
