Megyn Kelly Talks Rise, Election Coverage In ‘Harper’s Bazaar’

Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly is profiled by Harper’s Bazaar.  The magazine uses FNC’s election night coverage as a jumping off point to explore Kelly’s unlikely rise from corporate lawyer to TV news anchor.

When Kelly and her first husband, an anesthesiologist, relocated to the D.C. area, she sent her tape to all the local news outlets. After almost a year of working—free—at the local ABC affiliate, she was made a real offer, but she’d already set her sights higher. Brit Hume, then Fox’s Washington managing editor, had seen Kelly’s new, improved audition tape, and he was blown away. “Megyn’s a rare combination,” Hume says. “She’s smart, she’s curious, she has enormous energy, and she’s cheerful. Sometimes serious people come across as too combative. Megyn doesn’t, though she’s as serious as they come.”
