Tucker Carlson will take over Megyn Kelly’s 9 p.m. time slot after she leaves, Fox News announced on Thursday.
Additionally, Martha MacCallum will move to Carlson’s current 7 p.m. spot for at least the first 100 days of the Trump administration.
“In less than two months, Tucker has taken cable news by storm with his spirited interviews and consistently strong performance. Viewers have overwhelmingly responded to the show and we look forward to him being a part of Fox News’ powerful primetime line-up,” 21st Century Fox executive chairman Rupert Murdoch said in a statement.
