Former Fox News Star Megyn Kelly is launching a new independent media company called “Devil May Care Media.”
The controversial figure is reemerging after leaving Fox News and being forced out at NBC over a “blackface” controversy.
Some news: I am launching a podcast this month. It’ll be free & available pretty much everywhere. No B.S. No agenda. No corporate overlords. Should be fun! https://t.co/Fyltr6lpc9

According to The Daily Caller:
Kelly previously worked as an anchor at Fox News until 2017 and then at NBC News until 2018. Kelly’s NBC gig was cut short after controversial comments about “blackface,” although she apologized internally and on her show before departing from the network.
The journalist returned to the spotlight in 2019 with a series of interviews on her YouTube channel. She obtained exclusive interviews regarding multiple stories, including one with Tara Reade, who accused Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden of sexually assaulting her in the early 1990s. Biden has denied the allegations.
Following her YouTube channel, Kelly announced that she will be “launching a podcast this month,” which will be “free & available pretty much everywhere.”
In regard to “Devil May Care Media:”
It “will produce content including podcasts and other shows discussing the latest news, current events, legal and cultural issues with the same tough, fair, smart perspective that has made Kelly one of America’s most respected broadcast journalists,” according to an announcement on the website.
Kelly stated in regard to the political media landscape and her goal to escape it: “Every journalist’s dream is to cover the biggest stories and talk to the most interesting people without the shadow of a politicized media institution hanging over them.” The statement was featured in her announcement.
