Megyn Kelly’s NBC morning show will debut Sept. 25 with a live studio audience, POLITICO has confirmed.
The show will air at 9 a.m. and will be part of the "Today" show line-up, though a live studio audience will set it apart from the other hours. The possibility of a live audience had previously been reported, but now it’s official.
The network is currently looking for an audience coordinator ahead of the late September debut, the same week NBC is kicking off its primetime schedule, which means it will benefit from maximum promotion time.
Kelly’s morning show is in addition to her Sunday night news magazine, which has made a splash with interviews with the likes of Russian President Vladimir Putin and conspiracy theory radio host Alex Jones, but has yet to crack into CBS’ "60 Minutes" ratings dominance.
Kelly is expected to take on a less formal tone to her morning show and has publicly stated that her over goal is to “merge a little Charlie Rose, a little Oprah, and a little me all together.”
