People were surprised this week when Megyn Kelly announced that she will be leaving Fox News for NBC News. While she said she was happy, it looks like she has made a large mistake.
She may not be able to start with her new network for a whole year because of a six month non-compete contract that she had signed with Fox News. As her contract ends in July, she cannot work elsewhere unless given permission by Fox.
“Nobody knows when Megyn starts,” says the insider. “She is still under contract at Fox until July, then she has a six-month non-compete [clause].”
“Fox might let her out of the non-compete, but they might not,” the insider adds. “There is so much that has to still be arranged. It’s definitely not like she’s starting on the Today show Monday morning!”
