NBC’s ‘Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly’ Gets Premiere Date

The former Fox News star will debut on NBC June 4

Megyn Kelly’s magazine style show, “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly,” will debut on June 4 at 7 p.m. ET, TheWrap has confirmed through NBC sources.

Kelly will moderate an event in Russia where she will share the stage with Russian President Vladimir Putin from June 1-3, with her NBC debut coming the following day. Kelly’s weekday new morning show will air at 9 a.m. ET, replacing an hour of NBC’s flagship “Today” show, starting in the fall.

“Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly” will have a limited run over this summer and will return after the football and Winter Olympics in 2018, according to the New York Post. Last week, NBCUniversal officially kicked off the 2017 broadcast television upfronts from Radio City Music Hall and Kelly made an appearance but didn’t say much.

Kelly was the most-watched woman in cable news last year when she emerged as a household name at Fox News amid an on-going public feud with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump but left the network for a new role at NBC.

Fox News offered Kelly $100 million over four years to remain at the network, a person close to the situation told TheWrap back in January. News Corp and 21st Century Fox executive co-chairman Lachlan Murdoch personally made the offer, but Kelly turned it down without countering, choosing instead to join NBC.
