Greta Van Susteren Endorses Kimberly Guilfoyle to Take Over Megyn Kelly’s Timeslot

guilfoyleThe big news in the media world today was the announcement that Fox News star Megyn Kelly was leaving the network to go work for NBC News. Her last show on Fox will be this Friday.

Immediately after the shock of Kelly’s departure from Fox wore off, the next question was this — who will take over Kelly’s 9 PM timeslot in Fox’s primetime lineup?

Well, it looks like one former Fox News host has endorsed one of her former colleagues for the post.

Gabriel Sherman of New York Magazine noted that a couple of different sources told him that Guilfoyle was lobbying for the position.

UPDATE 8:45 PM ET: We have removed the portion of this article that said it was rumored that Greta was heading to MSNBC to work as a legal analyst. This appears to be in dispute.
