Lachlan Murdoch Shoots Down Idea of Megyn Kelly-Fox News Reunion

Co-chair of Fox Lachlah Murdoch announced today that former Fox News star Megyn Kelly is not returning to the cable news network after her fallout with NBC.

“Look, I’m a big fan of Megyn’s. I like her a lot. We didn’t want her to leave Fox when she did,” Murdoch said today while at a New York Times event. “Having said that, I’m very happy with our current lineup on Fox and we won’t be making any changes there.”

After a reporter asked Murdoch if he saw Kelly as “damaged” since she made the comments defending blackface, he said “I think she is.”

Kelly going back to Fox News never appeared to be a likely move, but that didn’t stop Fox News correspondent Geraldo Rivera from publicly calling for her return to his network.

Kelly is currently battling NBC over the terms of her departure from the network. The on-air personality’s lawyer even accused NBC of releasing false stories about her, which the network denies.
