Megyn Kelly‘s bold move to NBC hasn’t just upset her new coworkers — it’s causing a stir in other networks too!
NBC executives are rumored to be adding Kelly to the TODAY show’s notoriously rocky 9 a.m. slot, which will position her to compete directly against ABC rival, Kelly Ripa, according to MediaBlast.
Ripa and Kelly are far from strangers too! The former Fox News anchor guest co-hosted an episode of Live! in November, just weeks before announcing her multi-million dollar contract with NBC — awkward! Meanwhile, as Radar reported, the TODAY show team has been “on edge” amid Kelly‘s recent hiring.
“Everyone is just on edge, all the time,” a source claimed of the competitive atmosphere at the network’s ratings-hungry morning program. “Even when they’re up, they don’t know what’s going to happen.”
