Megyn Kelly shocked the media industry when she announced she would ditch Fox News and head to NBC. “The Kelly File” is regularly among the most-watched shows on cable news. So who will replace her at 9 p.m. on Fox News? Here are 11 candidates to fit in between Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity.
Sandra Smith The “Outnumbered” co-host is a frequent fill-in and beat both CNN and MSNBC combined in viewers while replacing Kelly the final week of 2016.
Jesse Watters The “Watters’ World” star parlayed his segment on “The O’Reilly Factor” into his own weekend show. Perhaps the fan favorite is ready for a weeknight show that comes on directly after his mentor, Bill O’Reilly.
Kimberly Guilfoyle ‘The Five” co-host recently spent time filling in for “Hannity” and was able to dominate CNN and MSNBC among viewers while doing so. Guilfoyle has ties to the Trump administration and would be an asset for Fox News in a primetime role.
