Megyn Kelly is off and running at NBC News with her first major assignment. Kelly will moderate a session of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“The conversation will cover a wide range of global political and economic topics, including international trade agreements, cyber-security and the impact of rising military tensions,” an NBC News spokesperson says. The conference takes place June 1-3 in St. Petersburg, Russia. The exact time and date of Kelly’s session will be announced in the coming weeks.
On Monday, her first day at NBC News, the network confirmed that her weekday morning show will air at 9 a.m. ET. Her Sunday night newsmagazine is also being planned for a June debut.
In an interview with Adweek following Trump’s election, Kelly told us she hoped to again interview Trump. “I actually think he will sit with me. I just want to give him some time,” she told us.
