Megyn Kelly leaves Fox News, joins NBC

Megyn Kelly leaves Fox News, joins NBC

Now that the cat's out of the bag about NBC successfully wooing Megyn Kelly away from Fox News, there is plenty of speculation about who should fill her prime 9 p.m. time slot.

Megyn Kelly has landed a sweet new gig at NBC News, and Tucker Carlson just got a major promotion at Fox News - but the big victor of this media game is President-elect Donald Trump, who next week will watch an ally replace a journalist he viewed as an adversary in one of cable television's most-viewed time slots.

"Tucker Carlson Tonight", which launched just two months ago, has been a ratings success.

Daily Caller co-founder Tucker Carlson will replace Megyn Kelly in Fox News's prime-time lineup next week.

MacCallum, co-anchor of "America's Newsroom" with Bill Hemmer for the past six years, will slide over to primetime into Carlson's old spot.

MacCallum's 7 p.m. hosting duties will initially be for the first 100 days of the administration of President-elect Donald Trump, the people said. Kelly was reportedly making $10 million to $12 million a year at Fox, so she likely snagged a similar figure at NBC.

And while timing is yet to be determined on Kelly's new daytime show, another source at NBC tells ET that "people are anxious where she is going to land" and "if she'll take my spot".

Microsoft also announced last month that there will be a Harman Kardon speaker that's powered by its digital assistant, Cortana. Meanwhile, small companies like Jam have already adopted Alexa for its Jam Voice , another smart home hub.

Carlson's program will be based in Washington; "The First 100 Days" will come from NY. Kelly's exit also follows the departure of another Fox News' primetime female anchor, Greta Van Susteren, leaving Fox News with the possibility of having no female primetime host. But Kelly had made it clear in interviews and private conversations that money would not be the sole determining factor in deciding on her future. However, no one at NBC or with Kelly has commented publicly on the financial details of her new NBC News contract.

Holy moly, is Megyn Kelly replacing Billy Bush on "The Today Show"?!

But that may soon change, as recent changes may hint that Murdoch wants Fox News to transform into a pro-Trump news network.

Ms. Kelly addressed her own news at the end of Tuesday night's edition of "The Kelly File".

The program will continue as "Tucker Carlson Tonight" and will broadcast live from FNC's Washington, D.C. bureau.

Carlson will take over for Kelly starting Monday.
