Beginning September 25th, the Today show’s 9 a.m. hour will be known as Megyn Kelly Today. The new name was reportedly unveiled during an NBC News staff meeting yesterday.
Page Six reports:
The development comes at the same time Kelly’s Sunday night show will end its initial run this week after eight episodes, NBC News confirmed Wednesday. Her upcoming one-hour weekday show at 9 a.m. will be in front of a live audience and premiere Sept 25.
The “Megyn Kelly Today” moniker is meant to incorporate the show into the “Today” franchise when it airs in place of the show’s former third hour, known as “Today’s Take.”
This move matches up with what Kelly told us earlier this year about her upcoming show and any potential relationship with Today: “There will be some continuity there. I think it will be a sister, but not necessarily a twin sister program.”
