Megyn Kelly will make her highly-anticipated NBC News debut on Sunday, June 4th with her news magazine show, Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly.
According to a Page Six report, Kelly’s program will air in the 7 p.m. hour, opposite 60 Minutes. CBS’s iconic news magazine is often Sunday’s most-watched non-sports program, even on summer Sundays when it often airs reruns. According to the report, promos will start running on NBC for her new show as early as Monday.
Kelly heads to Russia at the end of the month to moderate a session with the Russian president Vladimir Putin at his annual St. Petersburg International Economic Forum that takes place June 1 to June 3, right before the premiere of the show. NBC Newsers are hoping the encounter will result in a one-on-one interview with Putin.
Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly will have a limited run over the summer and reportedly will return after Sunday Night Football and Winter Olympics in 2018.
Kelly will also launch her 9 a.m. NBC daily “inspirational talk show” in the fall, says Page Six.
