Fox News has announced where Megyn Kelly will go in its primetime lineup, and she’ll move into the 9 pm slot once owned by Sean Hannity. He’ll switch to 10 pm, while On the Record with Greta Van Susteren moves from 10 pm to 7 pm. Bill O’ Reilly, the man most identifiable with Fox News, will remain in his 8 pm spot.
The new primetime lineup launches Oct. 7, which is Fox News’ 17th anniversary. According to the network, The Kelly File will feature interviews with newsmakers, investigative journalism and breaking news. As we mentioned last week, Shepard Smith is out of prime time. He will head up his own breaking news division and continue airing at 3 pm.
It’s shaping up to be a blockbuster fall for the cable news channel. As you may have heard, Elisabeth Hasselbeck joined morning show Fox & Friends this week. As usual, she didn’t shy away from controversy. Hasselbeck suggested there should be a national video game registry, and suggested it might help prevent tragedies such as the shooting at the Washington Navy Yard.
