Fox News Channel's Roger Ailes Responds About Megyn Kelly Moving To Hannity Timeslot
August 9, 2013 at 4:55 AM (PT)
Responding to a DRUDGE REPORT story that said MEGYN KELLY would be moved to the 9p (ET) slot currently held by SEAN HANNITY, FOX NEWS CHANNEL CEO ROGER AILES would not confirm or deny the move but said that the network "has new deals with HANNITY and GRETA (VAN SUSTEREN) and SHEP (SHEPARD SMITH)" and "all of our stars will be back."
DEADLINE.COM reports that AILES gave HANNITY a "ringing endorsement" in an interview with FOX BUSINESS NEWS' NEIL CAVUTO at the 21ST CENTURY FOX investors meeting in LOS ANGELES THURSDAY afternoon.
KELLY's move from daytime to primetime would necessitate the displacement of one of three shows, "THE O'REILLY FACTOR," "HANNITY," or "ON THE RECORD WITH GRETA CAN SUSTEREN."
