Megyn Kelly Addresses Speculation About Future at Fox News: "Don't Believe a Thing … Unless It Comes From Me"

A 'Drudge Report' story that Kelly was being heavily courted by CNN's Jeff Zucker launched a fresh round of rumors this week.

With Megyn Kelly's Fox News contract set to expire in 2017, speculation is running rampant about her future.

Will the Kelly File host, whose profile rose amid a feud with President-elect Donald Trump, stay at Fox, or will she leave for another opportunity?

Earlier this week, the Drudge Report posted that CNN president Jeff Zucker actively was pursuing Kelly to anchor an 8 p.m. or 9 p.m. show on his network, but he couldn't pay her more than the $20 million a year Fox is offering her.

In a tweet Friday night, Kelly indicated that nothing had changed for her and that the only person who knows the truth is her.

"Many reporters are writing articles about me and my future at Fox," she wrote. "Don't believe a thing u hear unless it comes from me, period."

Kelly's contract is up this summer. She currently makes about $15 million a year, and an annual salary north of $20 million would rival that of Fox News' top-paid star, Bill O'Reilly. Kelly previously told The Hollywood Reporter she was taking her time to make a decision, saying, "This is a big one for me, so I want to get it right."
