Yesterday, we learned that Megyn Kelly will be leaving Fox News so she can have a daytime show, Sunday evening show, and special correspondent opportunities at NBC News. What we didn’t learn was when the move will happen and what time slots she’ll fill.
Now, one question is seemingly answered. Her daytime show will take over the Today Show‘s third hour.

The 9:00 hour is a fraught one for NBC. From 7:00 until 9:00, Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie hold it down and at 10:00, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb come in for “fluffier” news. Billy Bush was supposed to bring new life to 9:00, but he sparred with Al Roker and then got fired over the so-called Trump Tapes.
The hope seems to be that Kelly will resurrect the hour.
