News: Megyn Kelly might get Days of our Lives Soap Canceled
It is unknown why the show is being moved in the New York Market. However today it was announced that popular Fox News host Megyn Kelly is leaving Fox after coming to a deal with NBC. Kelly will anchor a new one-hour daytime program that she will develop with NBC News to air Monday through Friday. The move of "Days" may be in anticipation of this. The news anchor will also host a Sunday evening news program, in addition to participating in NBC’s coverage of politics and other major news events. Kelly became a household name this past year after President-elect Donald Trump criticized her for her handling of the August debates. Trump came under fire in the fall after vulgar remarks Trump made about women before a cameo on Days of our Lives were unearthed. Kelly's final day with Fox is January 6.
