Former Fox News host Megyn Kelly suggested this week that there could be more to come out in the CNN scandal that caused former network president Jeff Zucker to resign.

Kelly, host of SiriusXM’s “The Megyn Kelly Show,” appeared on Newsmax with host Eric Bolling and said she can’t speak out on the specifics yet, but hinted that there’s more to come.

“I’ll tell you what — the biggest takeaway for me today — because there will be more shoes to drop. Mark my words,” Kelly declared. “But the biggest takeaway for me today –”

“Whoa, whoa, whoa. Wait, wait. Hold on, hold on,” host Eric Bolling interrupted. “Megyn Kelly, don’t drop that bomb without following that up.”

“What do you mean? There are more issues to drop from CNN? What do you got?” he asked.


“There’s nothing I can report to you now, but mark my words — there are more shoes to drop,” Kelly replied.

Zucker resigned on Wednesday after his admission that he had an “inappropriate” relationship with a network colleague.


Jason Kilar, CEO of Warner Media — which owns CNN — sent out a memo to all CNN staffers announcing that the network would be led by three co-heads for the time being: Michael Bass, Amy Entelis, and Ken Jautz.

In his own memo to staff, Zucker, in announcing his resignation, said it involved the investigation into former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo.

“As part of the investigation into Chris Cuomo’s tenure at CNN, I was asked about a consensual relationship with my closest colleague, someone I have worked with for more than 20 years,” he said.

“I acknowledged the relationship evolved in recent years. I was required to disclose it when it began but I didn’t. I was wrong.


“As a result, I am resigning today,” the now-former CNN president said.

“I came to CNN on January 28, 2013. Together, we had nine great years. I certainly wish my tenure here had ended differently. But it was an amazing run. And I loved every minute.

“I am grateful to the thousands of incredibly talented CNN and Turner Sports employees who helped make this such a joy for me, and such a success for all of us. I wish each of you nothing but the best in the years ahead,” he said.
