Former Fox News and NBC host Megyn Kelly signed a deal to host a new live chat program on SiriusXM. The Megyn Kelly Show airs weekdays from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. ET on SiriusXM Triumph channel 111.
The show will air live five days a week and will feature Kelly’s views on the day’s major stories, as well as listener calls and Kelly’s interviews with the day’s top cultural and political reporters.
As part of the exclusive offer, subscribers will also have access to a video version of the show. Subscribers to Kelly’s podcast will have the option of listening to episodes of the daily SiriusXM show on tape delay.
Beginning August 16, SiriusXM’s Triumph Channel will air Kelly’s best shows ahead of the program’s live premiere on September 7.
“I am thrilled to take our program to the next level by airing it live for SiriusXM’s massive audience,” Kelly said in a statement. “My team and I have been grateful to see our show, in less than a year, become one of America’s most successful podcasts – proving that there is a thirst for open, honest and more meaningful conversations about current events. I can’t think of a better partner to help us extend this reach even further than a top brand like SiriusXM, which has always been a leader in forecasting market trends and is perfectly positioned to the evolving way Americans consume their news.”
The Megyn Kelly Show represents the veteran media personality’s first daily program since 2018, when Megyn Kelly Today aired on NBC News at 9 a.m. weekdays. Her NBC morning show was canceled in late 2018 after back-and-forth over the use of blackface in Halloween costumes offended her colleagues and some viewers. Kelly left NBC in January 2019 with the remaining $25-30 million of a three-year, $69 million deal she signed with the company after leaving Fox News in January 2017.
