World News anchor Sawyer and venerable TV gavel-pounder Judy Scheindlin will appear on “The Kelly File” on Friday

Megyn Kelly will end the first week of her new show “The Kelly File” with two high-profile interviews with subjects from fairly diverse backgrounds.

On the Friday edition of “The Kelly File,” Kelly will interview ABC News’ Diane Sawyer, who Kelly has professed her admiration for in the past. Kelly and the “World News” anchor will discuss the latter’s exclusive interview with 16-year-old Pakistai Malala Yousafzai, who recently won the Nobel Peace Prize after struggling to attend school and subsequently becoming a target of the Taliban.
