Megyn Kelly is scheduled to start working at NBC in May. However, she will not come on board with all her shows until the fall. She wasn't due to start at NBC until after her contract expired at Fox in July. Fox released Kelly from her contract weeks ago. Therefore, she can start at any time now. It was back in January when the 46-year-old journalist left the Fox network as host of "The Kelly File."

Timeline for Kelly's NBC shows

Kelly will officially start at NBC next week, but her Sunday night program will not debut until June, and her morning talk show that will be part of the "Today" show will air in September.

The network has decided to launch the broadcasts in stages. For example, her Sunday night newsmagazine will launch in June at 7 p.m. that will take the time slot currently occupied by "Dateline." In fact, David Corvo and Liz Cole will produce Kelly's program just as that have produced "Dateline" for many years.

It will have new episodes during the summer when CBS News’ "60 Minutes" will have re-runs, and it will come before NBC's "Sunday Night Football" begins in August.

Kelly's show on Sunday nights will have the same format of other traditional news magazines that include interviews and news provided by the host and NBC News correspondents. NBC News chairman Andy Lack reportedly is trying to get Russian President Vladimir Putin to agree to an interview to be Kelly’s first guest.

Daytime talk show

Details for Kelly's daytime talk show that starts in September have not been confirmed as much as for her June newsmagazine. So far, it has been confirmed that it will be part of the "Today" show. The daytime show has been staffed ahead of time with no new hires anticipated. It is expected to have some core staff from the "Today" show.

Some of Kelly’s former colleagues from Fox News may join her.

The timeframe is still up in the air. It hasn't been decided if Kelly will take over the third hour that is currently "Today's Takes" hosted by Al Roker and former host Tamron Hall. Hall turned down an offer to stay at NBC after she was told the network was cutting “Today’s Takes” to make way for Kelly.

Another option is for Megyn is to take over the fourth hour that Kathie Lee and Hoda currently host. If that is the case, Kathie Lee and Hoda will move to the third hour because "Today's Takes" is being canceled this fall.
