Megyn Kelly’s controversial career is about to take its next step.

She is expected to debut on NBC next month.

But behind the scenes, she is dealing with a serious problem.

Kelly will debut with NBC News in May and her Sunday night magazine program will premiere in June.

The New York Post reports:

“Megyn Kelly is ready to get back on TV. Page Six has exclusively learned that Kelly will officially start at NBC next month.

“She will start in May, and her Sunday show will premiere in June,” a network insider told us. Kelly had been expected to start in July after her Fox contract expired, but she was just released from her Fox deal two weeks ago.

She will join Kate Snow as part of NBC News’ Sunday night programming.

NBC News vet and former “Dateline” executive producer David Corvo will executive produce Kelly’s Sunday show with another longtime NBC producer, Elizabeth Cole. NBC News chairman Andy Lack flew to Russia earlier this month to meet with Vladimir Putin’s spokesman, sparking buzz that a Putin interview may launch Kelly’s show.”

While those platforms are set, her daytime talk show is currently a mess.

No debut has been announced and The New York Post reports there is no staff:

“But the former Fox News star’s upcoming weekday morning program remains in shambles. We’re told NBC is still scrambling to find a staff and executive producer for the weekday morning show, which will debut in the fall.

“It’s a very real problem. There’s no staff in place. They have no idea what they’re going to do with Megyn. Ideas range from talk show to studio audience to news show. It’s a problem,” another source said. Kelly’s rep didn’t comment.”

Kelly’s daytime show has already caused problems at NBC.

The network canceled the 9am Today Talk, and the 10am co-hosts aren’t sure if they will remain in their current time slot or be moved to the 9am hour to make room for Kelly’s new show.

Kelly’s arrival also coincides with the struggling ratings of the Today Show.

It lags behind ABC’s Good Morning America and is barely ahead of CBS’ This Morning.

The New York Post reported on their ratings struggles:

“Meanwhile, “Today” is in a panic because “CBS This Morning” is catching up to them in the ratings after rival “Good Morning America” tripled its lead over the show last month. “They’re close to falling into third place. CBS has never been this close to ‘Today’ in the entirety of the show. ‘Today’ is panicking, and there’s a lot of infighting because NBC is starting to lose in the mornings and evenings. ‘Today’ has even launched a new promo campaign, which focuses on the newsy side to try to compete,” a source said.”

Kelly drew high ratings for her Fox News Channel show, but it is unlikely her audience will follow her to NBC.

When Tucker Carlson replaced her, he increased viewership.

And considering Kelly courted controversy by feuding with Donald Trump, there is likely little chance the Fox News audience will follow someone they view as an anti-Trump anchor hosting a new show on a liberal network like NBC.
