Yes, it’s really happening: Megyn Kelly will sit down one-on-one with none other than Vladimir Putin for the debut of her NBC news magazine show. Watch her excitedly confirm the news on the ‘Today Show’!
Megyn Kelly, 46, sure knows how to make a good first impression. The former Fox News personality has moved to NBC, where she will interview Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin, 64, in the premiere episode airing on Sunday, June 4. Megyn’s new show will be called Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly, and the hostess confirmed the news herself by appearing on the Today Show on Thursday, June 1. Not only was she live from St. Petersburg, Russia, but this also marked her very first appearance on the network as their new face. It won’t be the last time, either… she’ll take over hosting the 9am hour of the morning show starting in September 2017!
“NBC’s Megyn Kelly is in St. Petersburg where she will speak with Mr. Putin,” Today Show host Matt Lauer told viewers during the live Thursday morning broadcast. Megyn took over after the sweet introduction and welcome from the Today Show hosts to share that not only will she be interview President Putin, but she’s been asked to moderate a panel during the international economic forum he is hosting. Needless to say, Megyn is getting ALL the scoop from the controversial Russian president for her new gig!
It’s unclear whether or not Megyn has already filmed the interview with President Putin, but the first promo from NBC News promises it will be a very interesting hour of television. “The questions only he can answer, the questions only she can ask,” a male narrator dramatically claims over clips of Megyn at her new news desk.
