NBC Has Reportedly Decided The Premiere Date and New Details For Megyn Kelly’s New Show


Megyn Kelly. Remember her?

The Fox News star ended her career with that network on a strong note, with a high profile feud with Donald Trump and helping to push network founder Roger Ailes firmly out the door.

Then she kind of disappeared.

Now, Deadline is reporting that Kelly will return to television with the June 4 premier of Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly. The program is expected to take the format of a news magazine. Fox NFL Sportscaster Erin Andrews has reportedly been confirmed as one of the initial guests.

As Mediaite previously reported, Kelly is scheduled to travel to Russia next month to moderate a panel of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum that will feature Vladimir Putin. Deadline (probably correctly) speculated that Kelly was likely jonesing for a larger sit-down interview with the autocrat that everyone can’t help talking about.

The show in its current time slot is only expected to be temporary, the ex-Fox News star will also host a daily 9:00 a.m. program on NBC beginning in September.
