Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Vladimir Putin meeting with Megyn Kelly, NBC News anchor and moderator of the St Petersburg International Economic Forum plenary session
Fired Megyn Kelly may have a new gig. Russian state-directed television Channel One has offered to have her host one of its famous shows – Vremya, or Time.
Russia’s Channel One television anchor Kirill Kleymenov has invited U.S. presenter Megyn Kelly to co-host the channel’s Vremya program. Addressing a message to Kelly during his show on Sunday, Kleymenov advised “dear Megyn” to “stop giving a damn” about her American bosses.
“Come to Russia, to the heroic city of Moscow. Come straight to the studio, we will host Vremya together. You will be loved by millions of Russian men, while a million women will be jealous of you,” Kleymenov said, reported The Moscow Times.
However, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, “You know, she has a very high salary,” he said, adding that “her employment doesn’t concern the Kremlin.” However he praised Kelly for her “dynamic and energetic interview with President Putin.” In March of this year, Kelly traveled to Russia for an extended interview with Putin that was aired on NBC, wrote The Moscow Times.
