Megyn Kelly’s new morning show on NBC will air at 9 a.m. ET, an NBC News spokeswoman confirmed to TheWrap. The show is scheduled to begin this Fall.

The former Fox News Channel anchor will square off in many markets against a retooled “Live,” the syndicated ABC program led by Kelly Ripa.

Kelly’s show will replace an hour of NBC’s flagship “Today” show, while Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb will remain at 10 a.m. ET.

TheWrap reported in February that NBC executives informed Tamron Hall and the “Today” staff that the 9 a.m. hour was being canceled to make room for a new program led by Kelly. Hall was offered a multi-year, multi-million dollar deal to stay but chose to leave and the network announced her departure.
