Soon-to-be former Fox News star Megyn Kelly took to Facebook to explain her decision to jump to NBC News on Tuesday — expressing her gratitude to the cable news network without mentioning former Fox News boss Roger Ailes by name.
"Over a dozen years ago I started at Fox News in a job that would change my life. Now, I have decided to end my time at FNC, incredibly enriched for the experiences I've had. I have agreed to join NBC News, where I will be launching a new daytime show Monday through Friday, along with a Sunday evening news magazine program," Kelly wrote. "I will also participate in NBC's breaking news coverage and its political and special events coverage."

She continued: "While I will greatly miss my colleagues at Fox, I am delighted to be joining the NBC News family and taking on a new challenge. I remain deeply grateful to Fox News, to Rupert, Lachlan and James Murdoch, and especially to all of the FNC viewers, who have taught me so much about what really matters. More to come soon."
NBCUniversal News Group chairman Andrew Lack announced earlier Tuesday that Kelly would join NBC News later this year. Details about both of Kelly's news programs will be unveiled in the coming months, according to NBC.

Kelly has been a Fox News star for several years, but emerged as a household name when she feuded with President-elect Donald Trump during the 2015-16 GOP primary. It was a one-sided feud, with Trump attacking Kelly on Twitter because he did not like a question she asked regarding his treatment of women during a Republican primary debate on Fox News. Kelly did not publicly fight back, but former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes defended her throughout the ordeal.
Trump eventually skipped a debate over the ordeal, but the two made up and Kelly interviewed Trump for a special on Fox broadcast. Meanwhile, Ailes has since stepped down in disgrace after numerous women, including Kelly, have come forward with accusations of sexual assault.
