Megyn Kelly is reportedly leaving Fox News for NBC.

Kelly, who arrived at Fox News 12 years ago, has decided to leave the network to take on a new role at NBC News for an undisclosed amount, sources briefed on the negotiations told the New York Times.

NBC News chairman, Andrew Lack, was able to bring Kelly to 30 Rock by offering her multiple roles. Kelly will host her own daytime news and discussion program, anchor an in-depth Sunday night program, as well as take regular part in NBC special political programming.

Kelly, who became Fox News’ second-most watched host after Bill O’Reily, gained national notoriety over the last year due to her ongoing feud with President-elect Donald Trump. The loss of Kelly, one of the network’s brightest stars, comes just months after the ousting of founding chairman Roger Ailes, who was accused of sexual harassment by several former employees.

Here is the full statement on Kelly’s arrival to NBC:
