Megyn Kelly Will Take Over
Fox’s 9PM Primetime Slot,
According To Drudge

Mediaite, by Andrew Kirell

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/8/2013 1:02:05 PM

Last month we learned that Megyn Kelly was leaving her daytime anchor gig to take over a Fox News primetime slot. According to an “exclusive” Drudge Report flash this afternoon, that time slot will be 9 p.m. ET. “Superstar newswoman Megyn Kelly has landed the 9 PM slot, top sources reveal,” the Drudge Report wrote. “The shock announcement is set for later this month.” Fox’s 9 p.m. hour is currently helmed by Sean Hannity, leading to speculation over whether he could be out of a primetime gig. There are many possible outcomes from this lineup change,

Comments:
Excellent! Megyn Kelly is an outstanding addition to their primetime line-up. That must really hurt Hannity´s ego. Hannity has become tiresome. He let´s pundits bicker constantly that is so very annoying and he repeats the same thing over and over again.

I quit listening to Hannity and Colmes because all Colmes could come up with were the Democrat talking points.

Lately I´ve quit listening to Hannity because all he can come up with are Conservative talking points. I agree with most of them, but the constant refrain is boring, boring, boring. Rush and Levin have original thoughts, but Hannity could be replaced by a tape recorder of sound bites.

Hannity is a principled conservative who worked his way up.
Greta is a lib who would be better off returning to CNN.
Megyn is also a lawyer and more grounded.
Greta´s too close to Dem insiders and a Scientologist. -a dangerous cult. No wonder she doesn´t go after the Islamists.

Dunno. Hannity´s act grew stale long ago but I´m one of the few unimpressed with Kelly and her ´dramatic´ delivery:

´Hurricane.´ Irene. Running. Up. The. Eastern. Seaboard.

Poor Hannity. He will find the need to go back to taping shipping paper on his bedroom windows to block the sun. This downward turn will only force him to find the drive to excel and learn for his future endeavors.

Welcome aboard Primetime, Megyan

If in fact Hannity is being displaced, no loss, he is a lightweight in the smarts dept. IMO. Megyn never impressed me much either, but she has to be an improvement over Hannity.

Doubt FoxNews will be dumping Hannity. Lots of people like him. Actually, he seems to be getting more watchable and listenable as time goes by, although I rarely watch.
No doubt Megyn is cuter for non- gay male watchers. Unless you look at the photo on Drudge. She is kind of novel as a recovering liberal, as least presenting herself that way. No doubt Hannity will comment this afternoon.

Who says Hannity is going anywhere. It is possible that the two of them will host the show. I read that Sean just signed a long term contract with Fox, so he is probably not leaving. Although the time slots could be shuffled around.

I can´t watch windbag oreilly because he cuddles up to the dems too much.
I almost can´t watch Sean because he interrupts his guests too much and he blabs on and on and on repeating his question before each sentence or comment from his guest.
I wish I had a "mute" button so I could silence Sean and let the guest speak.
I love Sean´s spirit and viewpoint though.

I´ve seen enough of Megyn Kelly to know she´s an ugly harridan; a feminist; she´ll never take on the Libs the way Hannity does; too "balanced and fair."

Count me as one who is not impressed with Ms. Kelly. I don´t like feminists.

It could be all fake (probably is), but Kelly comes off more like an actual reporter, while Hannity comes off more like an advocate. I find her show much more watchable and informative than Hannity´s.

I´m a little surprised that Fox News would mess with one of its highest rating programs.

Big Megyn fan and hoped this was her time slot. Hannity still gets best ratings next to O´Reilly, and Greta is next. If you watch her, you would know shes no liberal, no matter what above poster says. She always has on good guests and unlike Hannity and O´Reilly actually lets them talk. Hannity has become tiresome, and overexposed, but really think Shep Smith is worse, so hope that is where Sean will go.. to the 7 time slot.

As for Hannity, yeah I´m getting tires of a lot of his schtick. His radio show has turned into a joke, bringing on libs and then talking over them.

You can´t change a lib, so don´t bring them on in the first place. They have plenty of other venues to vent their opinions on, let´s concentrate on getting the best people we can get into place and get them into office.

Since his days in Australia, decades ago, Murdock´s laser focus has always been on entertainment never philosophy, to gin up his bottom line; precisely what FOX News is. Fox´s lineup is about as conservative as the republican party i.e. close to zero. Sad the number who get their daily ration of ´truth´ from these third rate yip-yap artists.

#10 beat me to it. Hannity is impossible to listen to on the radio because of his repetitiveness, but the TV show has been good at times because he does a few novel things once in a while. Greta is truly fair and balanced, IMO. She asks the same tough questions of every guest, and I like that she gives Rush and Sarah Palin time on her show.

Megyn Kelly can be good, but the outrage is sometimes forced, IMO. I was really angry with her on election night 2012 when she so chirpily announced Obama had won reelection. I wanted to smack the smile right off her face!

Shep is totally unwatchable, and hysterical. He already has the 3 pm show, so get rid of him!

Let Sean go to the 70 slot in place of Shep Smith. I haven´t had any use for him since Katrina. He blew it for me then and I have never looked back. He never apologized for being so wrong about something so important.

Megyn will quickly turn off viewers with her gigantic ego. Sean has all the right views but is boring, interrupts guests, asks questions in the form of blowhard, "don´t you agree with me that yadayada...". People, find something better to do in the evenings. Maybe read a book.

Here´s my guess: Newsreader SHEP has 2 shows; bet he loses the 7pm, to Greta, followed by OReilly at 8, Megyn at 9, Hannity at 10

Shep Smith is the worst of them all and should move on to CNN or ABC.
O´Reilly is a gas bag and is getting stale.
Hannity interrupts guests because the liberals he has on never would shut up if NOT interrupted. Motor mouths who monopolize the air time, never giving the conservative an opportunity to speak.
I like Hannity.

Fun to read the comments.

Hannity reads his talking points on radio each day... fun when he cannot read his own
handwriting sometimes and stumbles around sort of confused...

Can agree that Shep can go without any loss from it...

Regarding BOR... I always like to say...

"The Olfactory Riled Her"

but then I also call CNN´s "Crossfire"...

"False Crier!"

A Republican congressman has introduced a bill that would stop government paychecks for officials who have been found in contempt of Congress — a move that seems designed in the short term to go after Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. Mr. Holder has refused to cooperate with the House GOP’s probe into the Fast & Furious gun-walking operation, and the House has voted to find him in contempt. Mr. Holder is challenging that vote in court. Rep. Blake Farenthold, a Texas Republican who publicly excoriated Mr. Holder at a hearing last week, introduced the legislation just before Congress went on vacation,

The White House on Tuesday downplayed the controversy over media access to President Obama, who will hold a moment of silence to mark the Boston Marathon bombing anniversary in the Oval Office without the press. The president and aides will observe the anniversary of the deadly attack behind closed doors at 2:29 p.m., exactly one year after two pressure cookers packed with shrapnel detonated near the finish line of the raise. “The president´s going to have a moment of silence in the Oval Office.

Fellela, pled guilty last week to illegally collecting more than $58,000 in Social Security benefits, according to local reports. Fellela pled guilty to five counts on charges of aggravated identity theft, credit card fraud, Social Security fraud and theft of government funds. This was not Fellela’s first brush with the law. In 1999, he first applied for Supplemental Social Security benefits — the benefits were ultimately terminated when he was

Rory Reid, the son of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, echoed his father’s comments on the battle between the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying the latter “should be prosecuted.” The younger Reid, a lawyer and Democratic politician who failed to win the Nevada governorship in 2010, made the remarks during a Monday interview on an NBC political talk show aired in Las Vegas. Reid claimed Bundy “is not a victim and he’s not a hero. He’s been using that he doesn’t own for over 20 years and he didn’t pay. He broke the law.

The New York Police Department has abandoned a secretive program that dispatched plainclothes detectives into Muslim neighborhoods to eavesdrop on conversations and built detailed files on where people ate, prayed and shopped, the department said. The decision by the nation’s largest police force to shutter the surveillance program represents the first sign that William J. Bratton, the department’s new commissioner, is backing away from some of the post-9/11 intelligence-gathering practices of his predecessor. The move comes as the federal government reconsiders and re-evaluates some of its post-9/11 policies, including the National Security Agency’s bulk data collection.

Fox News Channel’s The Five co-host Dana Perino was strongly critical of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) who she said was actively inflaming the tense standoff between Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and the federal government over his use of public lands. However, she agreed with her co-hosts who said that taking Bundy’s side in this fight was not the right battle to wage. She added that “wishful thinking” is among conservatives’ “worst enemies.” “You’ve got to find candidates who can win and then you don’t have to worry about Harry Reid,” said co-host Greg Gutfeld after lamenting the GOP’s

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

A fascinating article by Francis Wilkinson appeared in Bloomberg View last week (h/t Instapundit). Wilkinson detailed the fact that income inequality between whites and blacks is worse in leftist cities: Minneapolis-St. Paul. San Francisco. Chicago. Even Madison, Wisconsin. If you are politically liberal and value relatively high levels of income equality, you might live in one of these quintessentially liberal U.S. cities. Yet all four lurk in the bottom half of the 2014 National Urban League’s State of Black America report on income inequality between blacks and whites. Among the many places where black-white income is less skewed are Phoenix, Arizona,

The government says it has stopped one of its illegal activities, according to the Washington Post. The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to the Social Security agency. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on.

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of
