From Fox News’ press release:
In making the announcement, Ailes said, “Megyn is an exceptional talent who has successfully filled and surpassed each role we have given her at the network. Her ability to command the screen, delve into the facts and lead a debate is what makes her one of the most sought-after anchors in the business.”
Kelly added, “Roger Ailes hired me nine years ago when I was new to this business and he had little other than instinct to suggest it might work out. I was grateful to him then, remain so today, and am excited for this next opportunity.”
Kelly will take over her new time slot when she returns from maternity leave. The revamped schedule has yet to be announced, but warm wishes are already pouring in:
Congrats to @MegynKelly on the primetime move!
