'Today' Show Shakeup: NBC Eyes Third Hour for Megyn Kelly
Jan 28 2017
Though considerably less destructive than, say, global thermonuclear war-or even a total collapse of our economy-the latest news regarding Megyn Kelly's alleged $20 million contract with NBC is nonetheless something to be alarmed by.
As has been speculated, Today's Take, the 9 a.m. hour of NBC'sToday, is the odd hour out as the network looks to find a home for Megyn Kelly. "If it ends up being the 10 a.m. hour, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb will move to 9 a.m".
As for Hall, 46, who has been a host on Today since February 2014, her future with the show is less certain. A second source with knowledge of the situation echoes that despite rumors, Hall is "expected to stay at the network and with the Today show family". The hosts of the current 9 a.m. hour of "Today", Al Roker and Tamron Hall, would presumably continue with other duties they have with NBC News. So, that means Al and Tamron's "Today's Take" hour will be cut. She announced on January 3rd that she was hosting an NBC talk show during the day on weekdays and on Sunday night.
"She will either take over the 9 a.m. hour or the 10 a.m. hour", one source tells ET.
Earlier this month, a source told PEOPLE Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie would be remaining in their roles as co-anchors of the show, and that Kelly's start date is still undecided.
On Thursday Roker tweeted a pointed congratulations to the "9am producers for producing the #1 morning show 7 weeks in a row!" The third hour was beating every syndicated show across the board.
