megyn kelly prime time fox news 9 pm gi Megyn Kelly will anchor 9 p.m. FOX news slot   report

Megyn Kelly looks set to take over the prime 9 p.m. anchor position on FOX News. If this is indeed the case, Kelly will take over Sean Hannity‘s position in the first FOX News prime-time schedule change in a decade.

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.”

Piers Morgan, Megyn Kelly’s competitor-to-be over on CNN, didn’t seem too worried when he sent a “welcome” message on Thursday (Aug. 8).

“Bring it on @megynkelly”

The prime-time hour is definitely going to be busy with punditry soon.
