You may know Megyn Kelly from Fox News — probably even more after she made headlines for her decision to join the rival NBC News! — but you definitely won’t recognize the journalist in her newly resurfaced high school photos!
The 46-year-old attended Bethlehem Central Senior High School in Delmar, NY from 1984 until her graduation in 1988. During that time, she had full, curly hair! And quite honestly, we think she looked great!

After high school — she looked so different when she was a teen! — Megyn attended Syracuse University, where she earned a degree in political science in 1992. She later graduated from Albany Law School in 1995.

Megyn first joined the Fox News team in 2004. In early 2017, it was announced that she’d be leaving the network after nearly 13 years to join Today. Her show, Megyn Kelly Today, aired on Sept. 25.
In a previous interview, she revealed the reason for her abrupt exit. “This job change has been a way of taking better care of myself,” the TV star confessed at the time. “Settling for more means being with my kids more.”
“You have to be honest with yourself, even if there is some fear in making a change,” she continued. “Accolades or awards are meaningless unless you feel connected to the people who mean something to you — especially your children.”
Megyn’s unexpected switch caused a lot of drama amongst her future co-stars! To start, Today star Tamron Hall abruptly exited the program in early February. “The last 10 years have been beyond anything I could have imagined, and I’m grateful,” Tamron said in a message released by the network after her departure. “I’m also very excited about the next chapter. To all my great colleagues, I will miss you and I will be rooting for you.”
And that’s not all! Reports have suggested Megyn will knock out more of the morning show’s biggest faces, like Savannah Guthrie and Al Roker! “There is a rumor on set that Megyn would eventually get the lead anchor role on Today, pushing Savannah out,” a source revealed to Page Six in January 2017.
But with Megyn’s recent bad ratings and fan backlash, who knows if she’ll even be around much longer. On top of that, she’s even having trouble getting along with her co-stars! We guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens…
