    Megyn Kelly is gearing up for the debut of her Sunday newsmagazine show on NBC in June — and the anchor’s first high-profile interview on her new network may be with the Kardashian family. According to TMZ, the former Fox News star was spotted in Los Angeles Thursday morning headed into the same studio in which the Kardashian-Jenner family were filming a 10th anniversary special for Today. The whole family was reportedly there, including Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian and Kylie, Kendall, and Kris Jenner — though brother Rob Kardashian was absent, as was Caitlyn Jenner, who remained in New...

    Megyn Kelly is ready to get back on TV. Page Six has exclusively learned that Kelly will officially start at NBC next month. “She will start in May, and her Sunday show will premiere in June,” a network insider told us. Kelly had been expected to start in July after her Fox contract expired, but she was just released from her Fox deal two weeks ago. She will join Kate Snow as part of NBC News’ Sunday night programming. NBC News vet and former “Dateline” executive producer David Corvo will executive produce Kelly’s Sunday show with another longtime NBC producer,...

    "I told him then, I said, ‘She’s the devil, and she will turn on you,'" the Trump strategist reportedly said of Kelly. President Donald Trump's chief strategist, Steve Bannon, has opened up about the rift between his political website Breitbart and Fox News — and he blames Megyn Kelly. In a recent interview with Politico, Bannon said, "The big rift between Breitbart and Fox was all over Megyn Kelly. She was all over Trump nonstop.” Kelly, who has since departed Fox News despite an enormous offer from the network, made headlines when she accused then-CEO Roger Ailes of sexual harassment...

    Megyn Kelly's first interview in her new role as an NBC News host may be a coveted one-on-one with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The network's chairman Andy Lack flew to Russia this week to try to secure the interview, according insiders. He will appeal to Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov to take part in the sit-down which would make Kelly's hotly anticipated debut on the network even more memorable. The 46-year-old was released early from her contract with rival Fox News in March after she signed a $15million, two-show deal with NBC.

    (Angry Patriot) – During her tenure at Fox News, Megyn Kelly and Bill O’Reilly were constantly at each other’s throats — often over her selfish attitude and need to make everything about her. So, it makes perfect sense that O’Reilly revealed that her nickname was “Me-Again” Kelly, via Washington Feed. According to O’Reilly, it was “always about Megyn,” which is not hard to believe. All of the drama surrounding Kelly is coming out in the open after she tore up her contract with Fox News, with some months still remaining on it. Kelly was on a break from Fox News...

    Megyn Kelly grew tired of combative hard news reporting and now wants “to help people the way Oprah did” on her new NBC show, sources tell Page Six. After signing a deal with NBC worth between $12 million and $15 million, Kelly’s plans for her new show have been shrouded in secrecy. NBC brass are interviewing executive producers in the hopes that Kelly will debut in September at either 9 or 10 a.m. in front of a live studio audience. A source told us, “There was a lot of tough news to report on her show at Fox News. A lot of...

    Former Fox News host Megyn Kelly's arrival at NBC News, where she is to replace hosts Tamron Hall and Al Roker on the third hour of the Today show, has triggered anger from the National Association of Black Journalists, which claims the network is engaging in "whitewashing." [Snip] It added that Hall and Roker's strong ratings deserve "praise, not punishment," and then took a swing at Kelly, claiming that she has "a well-documented history of offensive remarks regarding people of color."

    After the dramatic departure of Tamron Hall from “Today,” TV insiders are buzzing that Megyn Kelly could next unseat Savannah Guthrie as the star co-anchor with Matt Lauer. Multiple sources tell Page Six that Kelly is likely to take the lead role on the NBC morning show with Lauer when she starts in September. Guthrie, who recently signed a new long-term deal with “Today,” could be bumped to another role or even take over Hall’s 9 a.m. slot, we’re told. “NBC is not paying Megyn $12 to $15 million a year to be on at 9 a.m. The word is...

    Former Fox star Megyn Kelly’s move to NBC continues to make waves – this time for one of the peacock network’s most familiar faces. Ten-year veteran of the “Today” show Tamron Hall has announced her departure when her contract expires at the end of this month. Her exit follows last week’s announcement that Kelly would be taking over Hall’s third-hour slot that she has co-hosted with Al Roker. In a statement Wednesday, Hall said, “The last ten years have been beyond anything I could have imagined, and I’m grateful. I’m also very excited about the next chapter. To all my...

    The National Association of Black Journalists is slamming NBC for Tamron Hall's abrupt departure on Wednesday, accusing the network of “whitewashing” to make way for Fox News star Megyn Kelly’s arrival. NBC hired Kelly away from Fox earlier this year in a deal that may have led to Hall’s departure. She has co-hosted the third hour of the “Today Show” with Al Roker. “NBC has been a leader for diversity in broadcasting, but recent reports that Hall and Roker will be replaced by former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly are being seen by industry professionals as whitewashing,” the group said...

    Megyn Kelly left FOX News earlier this month, and she now has a new job. Kelly will be hosting an hour of the Today show, likely to begin sometime in the fall. Along with her other hosting duties at NBC News, Kelly will either be taking over the third hour of Today, replacing Al Roker and Tamron Hall, or she’ll be taking over the fourth hour, which belongs to Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, according to People.

    Fox News's Tucker Carlson is nearly doubling the ratings of his predecessor, Megyn Kelly, when compared to the same time period last year, according to Nielsen Media Research. "Tucker Carlson Tonight" is up 95 percent in the 25- to 54-year-old demographic that advertisers covet most compared with the same period in 2016, when "The Kelly File" occupied the 9 p.m. ET time slot. Carlson has averaged 775,000 viewers per night in the category, while Kelly averaged 398,000 during the same time period, Jan. 11–22. Carlson took over the 9 p.m. slot on Jan. 9, shortly after Kelly announced she would...

    No surprise. There must have been some Trumpers who watch Fox News regularly but were skipping Kelly’s show out of pique at her. Now they can tune in at 9 p.m. Among the wider public, some people are doubtless checking out Carlson’s show out of pure curiosity to see what the new guy’s up to. And Carlson is good on TV, appealing and palpably comfortable in the role, which probably means new viewers are more likely to stick with him than they would a newbie host who’s less self-assured.The question really is this: If you’re a Fox News right-winger...

    The Megyn Kelly story is about best laid plans going awry—ironically awry. She bargained to be the biggest voice of the dominant news channel in America — and, as well, the best paid on-air personality in the history of television news. Instead, she’s become merely a contender among the knives-out egos in the contested (and ever dwindling) territory of network news—and at a steep discount to the brass-ring salary she might have had. The Murdochs, father and sons, thought Kelly was going to be their way of cleansing Fox of Roger Ailes and his brand of diss-the-elites conservatism—and of letting...

    Will Megyn Kelly be the next Katie Couric as she makes her transition to NBC? Time will tell, but the former Fox News anchorwoman’s recent appearance on ABC’s “Good Morning America” is raising eyebrows as it reportedly caused the network’s ratings to plunge drastically. While she was still employed by Fox and plugging her book, “Settle For More,” Kelly was interviewed by ABC’s George Stephanopoulos during a Nov. 15 segment on “GMA.” According to Mediaite, “The minute-by-minute ratings for GMA took a major (and surprising) dive during her segment … .” Rachel Stockman of Mediaite noted: “According to sources with...

And while the hiring of the two all-star anchors is being viewed by members of the media as quite the coup for the Peacock Network, Van Susteren is less than thrilled about being back under the same roof as Kelly according to one industry insider.

The couple was all smiles as they were pictured heading into the party and waving to the crowds outside, with Doug looking particularly fit and formal in a black pinstripe suit which he wore with a white oxford and paisley.
