According to The Drudge Report, Kelly — who is currently on maternity leave from her daytime show, “America Live” — will be announced in the news network’s coveted spot later this month. “It’s all about Megyn,” said an insider quotes in the report. “She is the new face of cable news. She has it all!”
The fact that FOX News wanted to move Kelly to prime-time has been out there since early July. At the time, the network’s CEO, Roger Ailes, praised Kelly by saying, “Megyn is an exceptional talent who has successfully filed and surpassed each role we have given her at the network.”
“Bring it on @megynkelly”
The prime-time hour is definitely going to be busy with punditry soon.
