Why Megyn Kelly won't Travel to Winter Olympics with NBC's Top Team?

Megyn Kelly won't be going to PyeongChang, South Korea, next month with the NBC's top team for the 2018 Winter Olympics. The former Fox News host will run her usual 9 a.m programme from New York City studio at Rockefeller Center.

Her Today show associates including Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb, Al Roker, Natalie Morales, and other notables will attend the Winter Olympics next month in South Korea. An NBC's Insider, with Fox News, said:

This is incredibly embarrassing for Megyn. Anybody who’s anybody at NBC goes to the Olympics.

However, it is not yet disclosed that the decision was made by Kelly herself or the Network. NBC has invested $1 billion for the broadcast of Olympics in the United States.

Kelly is now the highest paid personality and host in the network after the firing of Matt Lauer. she receives around $23 million annually.

Joe Concha, the Hill Media columnist feels quite odd to about keeping the network's highest-paid host at home. 'It is odd that NBC News would leave its highest-paid host at home,' he said. 'Megyn's ratings are improving a bit as the show has focused on the sexual harassment issue, but she could still use the kind of exposure and interviews you only get when physically at the Olympics', he further added.

'I sense that NBC feels Kelly could be a lightning rod and distract viewers from the feel-good nature of Olympics coverage,' media analyst Jeff McCall told Fox.

Megyn Kelly is listed to appear in NBC’s prime-time coverage of President Trump’s State of the Union address at the end of this month.
