In addition, she sure knows how to get and grow attention. That's the currency of the 21st century. Flash that around and you are welcome everywhere.
What a loss of all that to Fox News when Kelly goes to her next job. As the New York Post reports, that's at NBC. She will host a new weekday daily daytime show and anchor a new Sunday magazine program.
