Wii Megyn Kelly Replace Sean Hannity on Fox?

Fox News rising star Megyn Kelly is going to take over the prime-time slot currently helmed by talk superstar Sean Hannity, a huge shift in the conservative news channel's programming, according to the Drudge Report.

"It's all about Megyn," an inside source at Fox told Drudge. "She is the new face of cable news. She has it all!"

It would be the first major prime-time change in the leading cable news channel's lineup in a decade.

So far, no other major news organization is reporting the item. Matt Drudge cited anonymous "top sources" in his report Thursday afternoon, adding that the announcement would be made later in August.

Fox issued a statement shortly after the Drudge Report story appeared:

"We will neither confirm nor deny any programming schedule changes. As previously stated, the network has signed long-term deals with Megyn Kelly, Bret Baier, Shepard Smith, Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, and Greta Van Susteren."

But it's clear changes are coming. The big question is, where does Hannity go? He is signed to a long-term contract that will reportedly keep him on the network through the 2016 election, the Huffington Post reported. Fox prime-time's other stars, Bill O'Reilly and Greta Van Susteren, are also locked in to years-long contracts.  (Continues)
