"It's all about Megyn," a source told the website. "She is the new face of cable news. She has it all!"
Kelly recently gave birth to a baby boy named Thatcher Bray. She also has two other children: 3-year-old Yates and 2-year-old Yardley.
"Megyn is an exceptional talent who has successfully filled and surpassed each role we have given her at the network," network CEO and chairman Roger Ailes said at the time. "Her ability to command the screen, delve into the facts and lead a debate is what makes her one of the most sought-after anchors in the business."
It was unclear exactly what Megyn Kelly's role at the network would be, as both Hannity and Bill O'Reilly, who hosts an 8 p.m. show, were already under contract. Thus, some speculated that Kelly would replace Greta Van Susteren at 10 p.m. However, the latter host denied this rumor last month, writing on her blog that she had a long-term contract for a prime-time daily show on the network.
This latest report certainly puts Fox News' prime-time schedule in flux. Mediaite speculated that Hannity will now move to 10 p.m., with Van Susteren taking over at 7 p.m. Hannity could also move to 7 p.m. instead.
At least one member of the Fox News team thinks Megyn Kelly will do just fine in her new time slot. Eric Bolling from The Five tweeted out Drudge's report and noted that it is bad news for Rachel Maddow and Piers Morgan. Maddow and Morgan host rival shows at 9 p.m. on MSNBC and CNN, respectively.
Morgan, for his part, is already preparing for the fight. He, too, tweeted out this Megyn Kelly news, along with the message, "Bring it on."
Megyn Kelly previously made headlines during the November presidential election. That day, Fox News correspondent Karl Rove refused to believe the network's projection that Barack Obama had won a second term. Kelly then raced backstage on-camera to confirm this information with the workers tallying the votes. You can watch this sexy video of Megyn Kelly below!
