Megyn Kelly’s goodbye: Fox News’ prime time shake-up

In case you missed the announcement just before the Fourth of July holiday, Fox News has signed long-term deals with Bret Baier, Shepard Smith, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and Greta Van Susteren. The new line up has not been officially announced, but there will be one more name added to the prime time list, Megyn Kelly.

“Megyn Kelly will move to FOX News Channel’s (FNC) primetime lineup upon her return from maternity leave,” announced Roger Ailes, Chairman and CEO of FOX News, in a press release:

In making the announcement, Ailes said, “Megyn is an exceptional talent who has successfully filled and surpassed each role we have given her at the network.  Her ability to command the screen, delve into the facts and lead a debate is what makes her one of the most sought-after anchors in the business.”

Kelly added, “Roger Ailes hired me nine years ago when I was new to this business and he had little other than instinct to suggest it might work out.  I was grateful to him then, remain so today, and am excited for this next opportunity.”

Speculation has already started as to who might get bumped to make room for the popular, brainy, blond beauty. 

In her last day as program anchor for “America Live,” Kelly shared a personal favorite clip of an interview she did with her husband.

After saying goodbye to her viewers, she turned it over to co-worker Shepard Smith who joked about Bill O’Reilly getting bumped so that she could replace him.
