On her podcast, Megyn Kelly addressed the latest news related to the recent leaked behind-the-scenes footage of Tucker Carlson and who may be responsible.

In the wake of the leak to The New York Times following Tucker’s ouster from Fox, Kelly shared her suspicion that the head of communications and PR at Fox, Irena Briganti was responsible. Her speculation gained evidence as she revealed the latest news.

According to The Daily Caller, Fox News Chief Legal Counsel, Viet Dinh, reportedly reached out to an associate of Tucker Carlson on May 3 to convey a message. Dinh expressed regret over the previous week’s media coverage and assured Carlson’s camp that Fox News had not authorized the leaks that resulted in negative headlines.

Kelly spoke with guest Charlie Kirk about the progression, “We’re learning more about who is behind at least some of the leaks in this case, and I will start with this, sources say, Viet Dinh, the general counsel of Fox News relayed that the head of Fox News PR, Irena Briganti had been warned that she would be fired if she were caught leaking.”

Fox News has continually denied that Briganti has been the source of any leaks.

Dinh allegedly mentioned that Irena Briganti, the head of Fox News PR, had been warned of potential dismissal if caught leaking. Dinh admitted the network’s leaders also suspect Anne Dias, a wealthy hedge fund manager and Fox board member of unauthorized communication with the press about Tucker Carlson.

Kelly continued by explaining the small number of people with access to the leaked material, “They were redacted. Nobody knew about them, except for Fox people and Dominion executives so whoever had access to those also had access to those Tucker videos that were leaked to Media Matters, and that is a very small circle of people, and what I can add to the Daily Caller reporting is, after this piece hit The Times, the executives went right to Irena Briganti and said ‘If you leak, you’re fired’. And they suspected that she was the one behind this.”

Dinh also reportedly admitted the network’s leaders also suspect Fox board member Anne Dias, a wealthy hedge fund manager with ties to George Soros, of unauthorized communication with the press about Tucker Carlson.

After more than a decade, 710 KNUS weekend host Randy Corporan has hosted his last show for the Denver news/talk station.

According to the host, Salem Media Group informed him it would not be renewing his contract late last month.

Corporan told CompleteColorado.com that after the death of his wife in June of last year, he considered ending the show. However, he persisted, commuting an hour and a half one way to continue the show.

He added that since announcing his exit, he has been contacted by “truly conservative outlets” to continue his program, but said he won’t begin a new show until after the 2024 election.

“I want to get the start of my new life going and sort myself out,” he said. “And I want to take care of some personal problems that need to be dealt with.”

Randy Corporan is listed as one of the defendants — along with Salem Media Group, parent company to 710 KNUS — in a defamation lawsuit brought forth by Dominion Voting Systems over what the election machine company calls “false claims of fraud in the 2020 election.”
