The Official Blog of Fox News Channel

Megyn Kelly currently serves as anchor of FOX News Channel’s (FNC) The Kelly File (weekdays 9-10PM/ET) and is based in New York. She joined the network in 2004 as a Washington-based correspondent.

The Kelly File focuses on late-breaking stories as well as in-depth investigative reports along with newsmaker interviews. The program also capitalizes on Kelly’s skills as a former litigator and provides a platform to discuss developing angles as events unfold and embraces a stronger social media presence. Previously, Kelly anchored her own two-hour solo program, America Live (weekdays 1-3PM/ET), and before that, she co-anchored America's Newsroom alongside Bill Hemmer (weekdays 9-11AM/ET).

Throughout her tenure with FNC, Kelly has covered breaking news and has reported live from numerous political events.

During the 2012 political season, Kelly served as co-anchor of FNC’s America’s Election HQ alongside Bret Baier. In that role, she and Baier led the network’s election night coverage, an evening which delivered a record-breaking 12 million plus viewers and finished first among cable news and only second among broadcast. Additionally, Kelly contributed to the network’s coverage of the 2008 presidential election and 2010 midterm election.

While at FNC, Kelly has covered several major stories for the network, including the 2013 government shutdown, the Boston Marathon bombing, the election of Pope Francis and the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, C.T. She also provided coverage of the deadly EF5 tornado in Joplin, M.O and the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Previously, she reported from Blacksburg, V.A. on the Virginia Tech campus massacre and from Durham, N.C., where she notably covered the Duke University rape case involving three of the school's lacrosse players and broke new details that would ultimately help exonerate the defendants.

As a correspondent, she provided wall-to-wall coverage of the confirmation hearings for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. and Chief Justice John Roberts. In 2009 and 2010, she co-hosted FNC’s coverage of the confirmation hearings of Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.

Before joining FNC, Kelly served as a general assignment reporter for WJLA-TV (ABC 7) in Washington, D.C. where she covered national and local stories of interest, including the 2004 presidential race and the D.C. sniper case. Previously, Kelly practiced law as a corporate litigator at Jones Day for nine years and was an associate in the Chicago office of the law firm Bickel & Brewer LLP.

Kelly earned her B.A. in Political Science from Syracuse University and a J.D. from Albany Law School, where she graduated with honors and served as editor of the Albany Law Review.
