Megyn Kelly was seen looking emotional outside her Manhattan apartment building on Friday morning.
The new NBC hire was frowning and her eyes were closed shut and as she spoke to a man after arriving home from the morning school run.
Megyn was also no doubt tired after hosting an vent for her memoir ‘Settle for More’ in Princeton, New Jersey the previous night.
This comes just two weeks before her new morning show is set to premiere during the third hour of Today.
Tough day: Megyn Kelly looked emotional outside her NYC apartment on Friday
Out and about: She had just returned from dropping her children off at school
She clutched her phone in one hand and was wearing a backpack on her shoulder
Back in action: She was then seen again leaving the apartment building later that day
Despite reports to the contrary which have popped up in the media ever since Megyn made the decision to move from Fox News to NBC back in January, a network insider said that executives are ‘very excited’ about how the new show is coming together ahead of its debut.
And that debut will be in front of a live studio audience.
This marks the first time that NBC has offered up seats to watch the live taping of its most popular program in studio, though it has long offered up free tickets to join the ‘Today’ team on the plaza.
Megyn certainly looked right at home when she joined Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker, Carson Daly and Hoda Kotb on the plaza this Tuesday morning, where all six posed for a group shot with the Today puppy.
The only person missing from the shot was Kathie Lee Gifford, Kotb’s co-host on the show’s fourth hour.
Megyn also spoke about her excitement as the premiere date draws closer, saying: ‘ I feel like a racehorse in a starting gate.’
She then spoke about the tickets to her show, noting they are free but then quipping: ‘Until we can re-evaluate.’
Busy bee: On Thursday, Megyn was in Princeton, New Jersey to promote her memoir ‘Settle For More
The team of hosts then joked that Daly would be scalping tickets before Megyn said to viewers: ‘Bring every member of your family.’
Later, it was time for the group shot, which most of the team shared on their social media accounts.
Guthrie reposted the shot on Twitter writing: ‘It’s an us-ie… even better than a selfie.’
It was also recently revealed that Kelly is making an annual salary of $18 million.
Kelly’s salary is of particular interest given the amount of press that surrounded her move from Fox News to NBC, with her former employer offering her a reported four-year contract that would pay her a total of $100 million to stay on as host of ‘The Kelly File.’
Reports had her new salary as low as $12 million and most seemed to believe her contract was for $15 million, but it seems those numbers were all too low.
