First, Cumulus Media announced they were planning on dropping his radio show, and now Fox News is moving Sean Hannity out of his plum 9 PM time slot after Bill O’Reilly.
Drudge is reporting that, “FOXNEWS is set to make its first primetime schedule change in 10 years, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned. Superstar newswoman Megyn Kelly has landed the 9 PM slot, top sources reveal. The shock announcement is set for later this month. ‘It’s all about Megyn,’ an insider explains. ‘She is the new face of cable news. She has it all!’”Fox News execs believe that Kelly will inherit the mantle of top rated host from Bill O’Reilly once he retires. The news that Kelly was moving to primetime originally had everyone focused on Greta Van Susteren’s poor performing, by Fox News standards, 10 PM show. Nobody expected Hannity to get the boot from nine, but looking back, we all should have seen this coming.Hannity suffered a 35% ratings drop earlier in the year, and he got very defensive about the subject in a recent interview with Playboy:
