News anchor Megyn Kelly is leaving Fox News to join NBC, where she will have a wide-ranging role.

The move was reported Tuesday on NBC’s cable business channel, CNBC.

Kelly will host a daytime talk program and a Sunday night news show and will have a role in its political and event coverage, according to the CNBC report.

Kelly, 46, has been with Fox News for 12 years and is the anchor of its second most-watched prime time program, “The Kelly File.” Her contract, which currently pays her $15 million a year, is up in July.

Kelly was said to have an offer in the range of $20 million to remain at Fox News.
