We yeah. About how. And if you haven't heard yet big change it Fox News. But I did Kelly headed to NBC. Really curious as to whether our listeners will follow Megyn Kelly to NBC. Did you like her and and will it make you go over to Europe to check her out on Sunday night's. Six or 72666868. X 8680 is attacks line. When most fascinating things that I saw yesterday is kind of this. Almost undefined role that she's going to have we don't know too many details about it yet they're distinct daytime show went. The first thought to me I thought it was going to be on MSNBC it seems like that's not the case of BBI it's almost like she's going into syndication but she's probably just going to be on what at NBC affiliates. Like any sports contract you look at who've gotten who didn't cancel like let's talk about one Revis left the patriots for example the patriots did make an offer to. The revisionist history now is that the patriots knew we was past his prime and let him drive. They're offered to make generous offer there was what they thought they could offer and they weren't ever going to match with the jets did. And so Revis left conceptually that hurt the patriots it was supposed to help the division rival didn't work out that we find but the jets thought there again some in this case. There comes a point much like the Revis where the number just gets too high when she tells Fox25. Million or walk. You say walked. Right and you called a block they did she did not I don't know what NBC's paying her. My guess is it's not that high but she said. This is the cost to me staying at fox and putting up with whatever it is that she thinks she puts up with an excellent point five million they were able to come to agreement OK she leaves. Does NBC wind with her or do they turn into the jets would readers which is. They got something that was effective elsewhere but he's not effective for them that's the million dollar question. I'm not sure I see the initial bang for the buck on this right. Right now yeah. Everything you said it's absolutely true and they have not revealed how much money she's gonna make it VC in maybe she's making twenty million who knows you know she just turned away at fox because she felt like she wanted them to pay your ire. And they have all kinds of reasons why they did more Payer point five million as well you start to set a precedent with your talent that you can't you cannot. Have you know if she wants 45 million what's Hannity one when his contract terms that mean that becomes very public and it becomes a real problem for you. I'll it'll be interesting to see if she will be as successful at different environments sometimes talent. Does translate and sometimes it doesn't. Dayton parts translate and sometimes it now she won't be successful I'm Scott well I'll put off from fox studio Darius Butler plays Darrell Revis who. If you put lowering arm in a ten million. Page and get close to we have not the same number I think you're right and I think you'll put it all up and you put someone else walks that line. Suffer from this both I think I just never know and new world for fox I think it's going to be a new line up. Their approach and a little bit different way but they were they were setting themselves up and up against Roger Ailes has gone. She has much more to lose and fox does at this stage of the game as far as I'm concerned not money wise maybe but she certainly does as far as her career is concerned. Will CNBC. Will do everything in their power to make sure she succeeds. This daytime show it was interesting David is obsessed kind of with this whole idea how could she should get a bigger bank former box. From that magazine show the audience and in it's they can make him fly because I think. I think that sixty minutes is ripe for the picking. And NBC sees that this could be but nobody else has been able to pick them often I now have well I know but you know I think Megyn Kelly's gonna come pick them off. Well what I what I think we're seeing what we might see is a younger show coming to pick them. I think I younger approach coming and it did different way. I think there's younger audience out there that doesn't care about sixty minutes but might have some interest in the younger shows that approaches a different way. And I think NBC may see it and beer gonna give it a shot with her. This possibility I tuned in to the challenge that they had was at a couple years ago possibly in a might have been Lester holt for gonna they did but they tried to challenge. Sixty minutes with a new show it was it was edgy year. But it was still it didn't stand champ the Olympic camp within a few we both have to remembers and I I think you tell me I think sixty minutes. I still love it but I'm of a different generation in age and I think that a lot of their Jews. Literally has died out so. If they're gonna be ripe for the picking. Now's not Malcolm Butler says six or seven that I said there is violent did that in the only NFL com. My fascination with the making Kelly right now is and that's to present or use very often but the contract. You've got to network NBC that is just. Twice within the last couple years had to eat massive long term contracts. Report behavior from people they had no reason to suspect they would give poor behavior from. Brian Williams wasn't fired because they had him for five years 120 million per or whatever water they got a I don't. Billy boy I wish they had just signed in their what are they paying him like sixteen million bucks jumpin. So how are they writing Megyn Kelly's contract in case. Megyn Kelly does something because you can't how many times you gonna get burned by that well that you know what what she agreed to. I have to assume that NBC has learned their lesson and why they did that ethics clauses relocated to these talents with those huge numbers. I don't know but an ethics clause would be capsule in March and make him sign that if she doesn't have to sign when a fox the well we don't know she's one of fox I don't know. We don't know was under contract but I would absolutely I would be happy if you will have we won't know until her next book ha right what we. It would be interesting to see to me I think that's as much in negotiation there is the money is as to what they're going to what she will agree to let them limit her. Or would they will hold her accountable for now she's and like. I'm never gonna say what Billy bush did on the bus I'm never gonna lie like. Brian Williams who's doing it makes them pop like he would do. But you never know what the scandal could be of ourselves and get you enough water and vehemently that lauer was in how water after just that a to import job of reining in natural during that one interview when people were concerned about him so. You never know they can I have some sort of language in nearby when your warning people you don't usually put language in light. I gotta tell you what I wonder about as we knew offering someone. Twenty million dollars 22 million dollars a year and you are creating two positions so this is fresh and new. You don't know how that's gonna go you idiot and nightly news nightly news goes survive it's not totally see your twenty million bucks is gonna be spent at somebody who's going to be sit in the chair for. You know what that morning shows and do you sure what that Sunday shows they do what's contradictory. If she doesn't get maximum ratings and those shows have to go away. These and be seeking but the bill. What happens to that. That's the risk she told us talk numbers this destructive idea what people want in daytime they want is garbage with Kathie Lee and hold a drinking wine and The Today Show I think I got like the third hour but she's awful that we saw their prime time special where she was a fan boy. For Michael Douglas of all people. It was a it was a jokes that she's gonna fail at that and then to try to tickers fiercely on Sunday night did you predict Allen would be a success did you predict rodeo channel he's an entertainer Rosie or is this is something you call yourself a journalist probably about Rosie O'Donnell is likable for most people. For a large part of the country as there is and she was we're successful in daytime television. Original handling state to Howard Archer who even knew she why would you would you predicted that Katy Kirk would not be success that was that was shocking to see you never now but today part will be part of it to you because apparently this is. My understanding is this is going to be before noon. Whichever figure out how is she went after had helium ownership I want before. Now placed on my rights of other people should be shaking in their boots they maybe lose their positions and jobs. 672666868. 68680 is attacks line. Meg and Kelly you go quicker and can she succeed over to NBC it's 859 of the W mark you know Boston points. Good riddance I can't end. And she it was good in the beginning she got deposition are happy to have a woman that position. But then she became condescending and choose full feature. And I think that box it's trying that they may be with somebody at 9 o'clock. A younger generation golf that people are in your 40s60. Let's get somebody in new young and even in the morning. And Alan Coleman would like crap because she city lucked out. They need to have some kind of a different lineup like chill in the morning at a table GAAP and I hate that shell but I watch a satellite like the but again she's going to be. Got in the world. Debbie thank you I o'clock. I think that's part of what's gonna change it Fox News and I think part of that is ills not the door now they have this. And audience that's. Very hypersensitive to the idea that we're seeing so many women's legs and we're doing all this within there's going to be a slight change in some of that. Yeah. I did I do like it when it's working why would you change it. Well time will tell if it's gonna work I mean let's let's wait and see you know I mean again you know how ratings work and you know this goes he and others Paul outed. But why do you think now to more easily and creating and there works for and so they would keep doing it I mean if you're looking for a massive sea change of fox I think her crazy because they're making too much money. I don't know I MSNBC did what they did because they could not get viewers if you can't get viewers you can't make money. They had to do something different they want them where they want when morning Joseph among others they've been trying talent that's why you try Sharpton might. Maybe he has a cult following that we can sell like you're trying desperately to make sure you can make money fox makes money the the five. Outnumbered for example I hate the concept of outnumbered. I hate it but it makes money or they wouldn't be doing it so they're going to keep doing. I don't know what they do at night that's the bigger question well they fill this vacuum and who they Philip wind. I don't think it diseases you just plug in the next woman. I don't know who that woman is that there are hard to find and if they weren't there be more problem. If you wanna trumps blog yet to go with the girl from the blaze Tommy lower and she's the biggest you know she'd she was going viral every other week it seemed with her Trump's support but I think that you guys are just being I think you're being Carolina from the believes that fox that's a tricky one. I mean how did it work when who found the blaze. And knew how did he do with fox over the long term and there's a lot goes into that it's very count that's what I I think I think it's it's. I think it would be naive did you say oh we'll just take now Tucker Carlson Carlson Wolverine and the evening that's not how it works it just doesn't work my cargo carriers in July. Well for short term but there's a lot that goes into this building every search they'll bring a whole lot of people a lot alarming item between the man there's no question. Yep you gotta get there would do it our last caller just said which they first put Megyn Kelly in that spot I was thrilled. I was happy that it was a woman I was collect great it was great to see a woman succeed like that that she became kinda sending it. If the problem with Megyn Kelly for me. Is that she started to believe that the publicity and unfortunately this happens to a lot of people who get into these positions where they become uber popular. And they they start to become bigger than their shell. And that is what happened with her she allowed that to take over. She started right or books she started you know doing all the interviews she started doing all this kind of stuff and it became. An attractive. So that's what I don't like about Megyn Kelly I think she's planning Smart I think she's plenty capable matters for sure. What woman do you like on like you but the listeners what Rodman do you like on TV right now. Of substance not judging physically. But like so I look if you're gonna do what NBC did which is poach another network from their right so would you votes like I like Kate Baldwin on CNN. I don't know if you work at night my guess is she would I like the fallen drastically Kate Baldwin war and I think that's better where she is. I don't think Erin Burnett to heavyweight I I don't mind I actually she's here I think Erin Burnett is a mistake in the evening I don't think that's the strongest woman baker put in that job for sure so are you look around and users so when I'm every two man now although she does working MSNBC you should not go to fox obviously. Who who who would go so then I don't know an idol I look at Fox's lineup. I went to their bench penalty Guilfoyle moving in I don't see any Shannon Faulkner going down. I don't see you woman on in the morning. Ainsley Earhardt is not move in she's where she belongs. I mean I wonder if there should not I think you have to look beyond whose east exists. Arm on television right now. Fox has taken chances with women who were not big news anchors and made them into them. And so I would if I were fox. I'd be looking at some of these women who have been on as analysts. For the last year that a lot of television exposure. They've sort of figured out the game. And I think there are a lot of women out there who were pretty impressive analysts who looked pretty on TV emotions get right to it we just talked about the likes. Who looked pretty on TV but who were incredibly capable who could possibly jumping into that slot. Another might be a learning curve. You know or maybe you we've shifted a bit so that she nodded at 8 o'clock slot right off the bat you know he putter itself. And you give her chance to to you know day to to mature on the year. But I think there's a lot of people out there this is the prime year to find one after all of this analysis of that at Boston he had. On. Just a thought let's let's get out of business if you and a woman. What. She's going to be so I went to Greta Van Susteren did pretty well. Like. Great but you know that it was you like this they do it and as the meat on the time commitment that it really debacle so. I really think threatening note. At which he's going to court and she will be there and counseling. Atomic ball. You won't go all out so well people thought big element out she's. That's a good person he would go down all the taxes and a lot of taxes say her once is Dana Perino and obvious as law of Kimberly Guilfoyle soul techsters think that they got plenty in reserve need aromatic coffee cup confidence appear Piero is firecracker and half. She is she's got disaster stands up to anybody and everybody which is very true bill is in South Boston hey bill good morning. Folks you know I really like Chara I really glad that your intent. Damn much what she was she trying to trump like that it was a machine exposed herself. You know in and I never liked her after that just last week I was watching an issue is. That's talking about that triumphant and all the negative stuff I turn terrorized what I think she got that shot an issue that Barack. In almost guns. Bill thank you. I you know I I was in a big obviously and a big trump supporter during the campaign I have less problem with her going after him. I just didn't like the week she got so. No she's sure carried its reach in some ways kept preaching maybe that's what it is obnoxious I just don't like going out at all or like adding anyone worse when she tries to be endearing that is or worst. She gives the nickname for her husband is I'll be home to new medium. It is horrible thing it's not because. It's a woman's saying it's because she doesn't that's not error and it's never worked fine. All right it's I feel like a lot. I can't stuff right there that's ridiculous I mean if she wanted to just. Yeah if you wanna go after people go after him that's your job that she gets into that sugary sweet stuff will. Six foot 72666868. We have followed word and BC and who do you think will replace or on fox. Four vehicles right after the break meant fourteen of the double York you know Boston knocked a more patient you don't tell us whether it's good journalism that's right you dollars and journalism we tell you whether it's good enough. The if she did what Scarborough did this week he purposely became the story and needed to get the headlines and she did that the entire campaign cycle. It was a. Bob as you do hey Bob good morning your WRKO. Good morning actually over the last year or so like I shall we couldn't even watch Megyn Kelly anymore. She came so annoying but our candidates or replacement. Will be Shannon Bream. She does a great job when she's hosting the exit corporate Aaron is Mary's not there she got the looks and she's got substance. I'm a big fan errors. Mowing has weathered how warm enough is the right word she's she's a little bit this passionate sometimes. Like on rare show. That's at 6 o'clock. Usually have a panel reviewing when you're doing the interaction you don't have to do a lot of it. Now she could set up a major show that way right home. But but she couldn't do what Megan did I don't think over the long run I'd like Shannon Bream a lot she's she's actually one of my favorite fox personalities. I don't think you want to do it Megan did that would be the whole idea right I would go in there with a whole different format. A completely different kind of show. I wouldn't want to be known as Megyn Kelly's replacement. I would live to be known as somebody who had my own show and is what my shows about. Rafik is in March down from morning. Good morning Tom. A duplicate something about your chem and references to this issue is that the Italian oh. The honorable. John of his and a youth that you did it in your days are our blog. And that should be. Consider this so that you compliment because you're you're and identity would you and a lot of issues but it days in the days of of them in the kind of journalism that you did and how you feel about things and you and you ethics are Lanka. Tried making county. I never followed ARIAD how much I I I think you look in the beginning and exactly it's that cheap. It got in her hand and I'm not fire anywhere. Thinking out of about that little bit and whether issue continue to be in politics or or or more to it to the TV show something like that carrier on. How realistic I don't know but a lager. Mario and I all know she's not get because she's she's taking a position in. Administration's so she's really interest and I'll be doing now let's go to subsites in Quincy. The board except. Hey hey everybody. I watch. All the stations but lefties in the ratings and and and trying to split on Megan because that they really did kind of attachments are. Through the through the election is. With a scene to shoot our way out because of the Gretchen Carlson thinkpad and Newhart chick it was there she is just you know she could pick flight. With the fact that especially against Kellyanne Conway who it would make him out of her her attitude that a little. Up pretty in a way where she did get a little bit too much or so which you want she wasn't totally. She wasn't torn the party line when he came to fox on on a lot of occasions which some good the back before she ever Kellyanne Conway where. She would call Kellie Odom something that she didn't she is the factor didn't have been. I think that that needs to happen I mean if you want someone I mean I like CNN. If you want which is sad you know it is a little of this passionate but I know if I want someone to just report the news to me I'm not looking for some related Tammy. Or just kuril. Like sycamore editorial side where they just delegate you know passionate but they're gonna basically. They gonna toe the line they're going to be you know if you left it going to be pro right and you're not really gonna get. Quote unquote news. Which I don't really feel you get much news out of. The national scene because you know they obviously. Have agendas. And it but I I think I I go watch Megan for a little bit but I think the passionate came on fox. Will get lost on on a more. Broader national mood seemed like NBC because. Should unless you turn it the next Barbara wallow she has been a beast that meant an extra years early snowball questions. I just don't see what she's going to be able to do for a new show on a national network well at that verse what she did for fox. Will say Yemen that's why you kind of have to watch I mean maybe she's got something completely different in mind and you know you've never seen anything like this before. Or maybe you will be more of the same if that's special she did is any indication. And will be checking out quickly but. If it's a little more than that may be sure over the next par Walters either because I don't think that. Number one I don't think another Barbara Walters exit so we don't I heard and want that and our laws that doesn't exist anymore. Let's go to Mike Mike's in Wakefield the born Mike. Good morning you guys can't stand Megyn Kelly you know I I don't like the fact that she thinks but I. Doing whatever. Cute facial. Inflections. She can charmer everybody. And what we have to see more of Israel. Like when she threw the roads CO2 Arnold question. As the president the Donald and she got it right back in workspace you know we we got to see more that I can't stand or she's she's an opportunist. If people really want a seat Megyn Kelly and see what an opportunist she didn't have to go to the YouTube wish used. Interviewed by Howard she earned yeah and and the debt. That that woman will shrink in order to answer. Mike what I. NBC right. At that a but I can't answer but by Becky. I don't think he's in the lineup to find out when she comes. Yeah I don't the group bankers went on Howard Stern has fine and others do and you know you're gonna talk like that you view them in a different way you have to at that point. She did that pretty early than did she completely sexual with yourself I'm sorry I heard that and view the quiz I think that was in my head do you remember it was early I years ago. Yeah it was early but again. He is Mike's right in that she used it as an opportunity to try to would be in her career pretty dramatically. But I mean Weathers is so Brian Williams used Letterman now when I mean Brian is trying to get a David Letterman show I mean he. Making Kelly's doing what Brian Williams couldn't do Brian Williams has to be hearing is today going you kidding me. Because this is what I wanted and he said no well be honest with you I viewed very differently. You can go line. It's wanting to go on David Letterman and try to advance your career or to go on the view. It's another to go on Howard Stern. As a moment because you know exactly what you marketing into there and if you're open to that idea and your music there's a reason why a lot of news anchors don't female news seekers don't go on Howard Stern Kenneth. You do turn yourself into something maybe that and a didn't set out to do in the beginning I don't know but I think maybe she get hit. So I want meg and Kelly is deluded if she thinks her rise to fame is based solely on her skills one of the main reasons she moved up pretty quickly at foxes are appearance. I think Megan would know that I. We you all do what you do you work which you've got you play the hand you're dealt to you played the best your ability. She has parlayed that into a big gig at fox she then had opportunity arrived she answered the door. He she worked very well now she's working on to the next thing doesn't mean it's going to be a success doesn't mean it's gonna fail she's not. Her successes in solely because of Roger Ailes of fox and it doesn't mean she hasn't learned from them and can't replicate that some morals we don't know we will see. My gut tells me she will fail. But I don't know I mean. Don't underestimate her and she's done what you would want people to do she is aggressive she is not going to be beholden to somebody else. She's gonna make a big move when she could've played it safe. Take it another five year twenty million a year deal at fox or some version thereof. That's the easy thing to do care and who wouldn't do that normally she didn't so give a little bit of credit even Leo liquor law and let me just say one thing about our looks. Her looks may have propelled her into the position and given her an opportunity back. Viewers are much smarter than someone as beautiful looks there's a lot of beautiful faces. Over time beautiful face wears very thin if you're bimbo she's not a bimbo she's a bright woman she's Smart she's very capable. Which she jumped back quickly had she been in unattractive woman maybe not but it's a visual medium and we all know that but she had what it took to stand behind it. The viewers are too Smart for just a face six foot 72666868686. It is attacks find you hosting the WRKO boston.com points.
