As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by Variety.com:
The Megyn Kelly debacle at NBC News has raised the question of whether NBC News chief Andy Lack will face repercussions for the costly experiment. But NBCUniversal CEO Steve Burke told Variety on Monday that he is “100% behind Andy” and accepts some blame for the decision recruit Kelly from Fox News in early 2017.
“News organizations like ours should take risks,” Burke said. The decision to hire Kelly was ultimately Burke’s call, he said. “I went over and told (Kelly) she should come here,” Burke recalled.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Megyn Kelly was a huge talent. She was at the wrong time of day (on NBC). In hindsight we shouldn’t have done it. But it wasn’t Andy going off rogue,” Burke said.
NBCU CEO Steve Burke: “Megyn Kelly was a huge talent. She was at the wrong time of day. In hindsight we shouldn’t have done it. But it wasn’t Andy going off rogue.” Naah- the network just offered her $69M & offered her two shows without an actual plan.
