Fox News, who was crowned the king of cable television this week, has announced that Megyn Kelly will be replaced by an equally impressive anchor in the coveted 9pm slot. That replacement has liberal pundits cowering at their desks.
“Following Megyn Kelly’s departure from Fox News, anchor Tucker Carlson will assume her 9pm prime time slot, the network has confirmed.
“On Thursday, Fox News announced it would be rearranging its prime time lineup after it was revealed Kelly would be leaving the conservative network for NBC.
“’In less than two months, Tucker has taken cable news by storm with his spirited interviews and consistently strong performance,’ 21st Century Fox Executive Rupert Murdoch said. ‘Viewers have overwhelmingly responded to the show and we look forward to him being a part of Fox News’ powerful primetime line-up.’
