Megyn Kelly's hefty salary at NBC is drawing the ire of some at the network, according to a new report.

The Daily Mail quoted NBC executives who are not involved in Kelly's morning show or her hiring earlier this year as saying Kelly is in line to earn $69 million over three years. Kelly's paychecks, they said, should not be in line with other network anchors and hosts who have worked there for years.

"This is insane! How on earth can they justify paying her $69 million for three years?" one executive told The Daily Mail, referencing Kelly's apparent three-year contract. "It's obscene and a giant slap in the face to all of NBC's established stars."

Kelly departed Fox News earlier this year and debuted on NBC over the summer with her Sunday night news magazine show. Her weekday morning show began last week but has drawn mixed reviews.

The NBC source told The Daily Mail Kelly's time at the network could end up being a very expensive mistake.

"The network that created Barbara Walters, Tom Brokaw, and Matt Lauer will now forever be remembered for the $69 million hire of Megyn Kelly," the source said. "When you add the cost of developing the show, hiring staff, and promoting Megyn all the time, this adds up to a $100 million mistake."

Said another NBC executive: "Megyn's salary should be nowhere near Matt's. He's been at NBC for 23 years now and has captained the ship through good times and bad times. He's worked very hard to deserve that salary."
