Megyn Kelly recounted sexual harassment at Fox News on Wednesday as she denounced Harvey Weinstein, adding her voice to the growing litany of Hollywood stars and politicians who once befriended the disgraced movie mogul.

She told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell the issue of sexual misconduct is not limited to show business, as she learned working for Fox, Mediaite reported.

"I hope our own industry looks at itself and does a cleaning of house and gets honest about anybody in their companies who they've had to pay out repeated settlements for because at this point – if that gets unearthed, if there is such an executive at these other companies – it's on you," she said.

"You're on notice to go clean up your house, figure out who you've got there."

In her memoirs, Kelly exposed sexual harassment by Roger Ailes, the former chairman and CEO of Fox News who died in May. Kelly, a Fox News star anchorwoman before she moved to NBC, accused Ailes of repeated attempts to grab and kiss her and frequent "sexually charged comments" when he would call her into his office.

On MSNBC, Kelly also reviewed her coverage of last year's presidential campaign when she publicly clashed with then-candidate Donald Trump.

"One of my main takeaways from 2016, everything that happened in that campaign, was that we as women have a long way to go," she said.
