Megyn Kelly’s prime-time Fox News debut will be in the 9 p.m. timeslot for her new show “The Kelly Files,” the channel announced on Tuesday.
Curiosity over where Kelly would end up in Fox News’ prime-time lineup began as soon as the network announced she would leave her spot at “America Live” in July.
Sean Hannity, whose “Hannity” currently inhabits the 9 p.m. timeslot, will move 10 p.m., while Greta Van Susteren’s “On the Record” will move from 10 p.m. to 7, in the timeslot previously occupied by “Fox Report with Shepard Smith.”
“Fox News already redefined prime-time viewing to extend well beyond the antiquated 8-11 p.m. format,” chairman and CEO Roger Ailes said in a statement.
“We’ve developed a deep bench of engaging and thought-provoking personalities that have grown with Fox News as it has evolved into the most influential and successful cable network in television.”
The new schedule will debut Oct. 7.
