Earlier this summer, Fox News announced that Megyn Kelly would be moving to primetime when she returned from maternity leave. Many speculated as to where she’d fall into the schedule.
This morning, Matt Drudge reports that Kelly will take over the network’s plum 9 p.m. slot:

Many people are now wondering what how this will affect Sean Hannity, whose show currently airs at 9 p.m.
So Megyn Kelly to 9pm, according to Drudge… where would Hannity go?—
