- Megyn Kelly is set to start work at NBC next month, with her new Sunday night show debuting in June, New York Post’s Page Six has learned
- The former Fox News anchor will also be hosting a weekday show for her new network, but that won’t debut until the fall
- Earlier this month, NBC News chairman Andy Lack flew to Russia to meet with Vladimir Putin’s spokesman about a possible interview
- The trip sparked rumors that an interview with the Russian president could launch Kelly’s show
Megyn Kelly will start work at NBC News next month, it has been reported.
A network insider told the New York Post’s Page Six that Kelly will start work in May and that her Sunday night show will premiere in June.
The former Fox News anchor was expected to start work in July, when her non-compete clause expired, but Fox released her from that contract early two weeks ago.
Earlier this month, NBC News Chairman Andy Lack flew to Russia to meet with Vladimir Putin’s spokesman, sparking rumors that the Russian president could be Kelly’s first interview.
David Corvo and Elizabeth Cole, a senior executive producer and executive producer for Dateline, have been hired to run Kelly’s new show.
Kelly is also set to host a weekday show, but just what kind of show that will be is still up in the air.
‘It’s a very real problem. There’s no staff in place. They have no idea what they’re going to do with Megyn. Ideas range from talk show to studio audience to news show. It’s a problem,’ another source told the Post.
That source said that the network is still scrambling to staff Kelly’s daytime show and find an executive producer to run it.
But another insider painted a different picture.
‘Megyn’s morning show is almost entirely staffed – and it doesn’t air for another five months. They just haven’t announced anybody,’ the source said.
DailyMail.com reached out to NBC for comment, but did not immediately receive a response on Monday. source
