Megyn Kelly is ready to get back on TV. Page Six has exclusively learned that Kelly will officially start at NBC next month.
“She will start in May, and her Sunday show will premiere in June,” a network insider told us. Kelly had been expected to start in July after her Fox contract expired, but she was just released from her Fox deal two weeks ago. She will join Kate Snow as part of NBC News’ Sunday night programming.
NBC News vet and former “Dateline” executive producer David Corvo will executive produce Kelly’s Sunday show with another longtime NBC producer, Elizabeth Cole. NBC News chairman Andy Lack flew to Russia earlier this month to meet with Vladimir Putin’s spokesman, sparking buzz that a Putin interview may launch Kelly’s show. But the former Fox News star’s upcoming weekday morning program remains in shambles. We’re told NBC is still scrambling to find a staff and executive producer for the weekday morning show, which will debut in the fall.
“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 said. Kelly’s rep didn’t comment.
