Megyn Kelly had plenty to say in her first interview since parting ways with NBC in January — but her lips were sealed when it came to outwardly addressing that departure.

The 48-year-old journalist appeared on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Wednesday, though she didn’t discuss her abrupt exit from the network. The interview — which also marked Kelly’s first time on Fox News since she left the cable news network in January 2017 after 12 years to take a job with NBC — saw her instead address topics like NBC’s lack of an external investigation into Matt Lauer, Ronan Farrow’s upcoming book and the state of journalism today.

After a brief pause, Kelly continued, “I have learned a thing or two. What comes to mind is the goodness of humanity, the kindness of strangers, just as awful as the media can be, actual humans are awesome and loving and kind and helpful.” She added that she left Fox News in 2017 to spend time with her family and she couldn’t be happier with her decision. “I’m mothering my own kids, and there’s no substitute for that. I lost my dad when I was 15 years old, so I know… you don’t get a do over… so I’m there and I’m enjoying it.”

“I’ll get back on that horse soon, because this has been fun, so I’ll probably get back out there, but right now, I’m still enjoying my day-to-day life with my family and friends,” she shared.
