It’s likely Megyn Kelly will return to television in June.

Kelly left Fox News in January, not long after Roger Ailes, who was forced out after allegations of sexual harassment started mounting against him. Reports indicate that it was Kelly’s own admission that Ailes harassed her that served as the nail in his coffin.

When she left Fox in January, Kelly announced she would head to NBC but would first be taking some time off. Page Six is now reporting that she’ll be back on air soon and they’re crediting a “network insider” for the scoop.

“She will start in May, and her Sunday show will premiere in June,” said the insider.

The primetime sandwich she created by having a show between those of Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity was successful, but since O’Reilly was ousted over his own sexual harassment allegations, that dream team is just a memory. Where once were O’Reilly, Kelly, and Hannity, there is now Tucker Carlson, a nighttime edition of The Five … and Hannity
