Megyn Kelly 'too moderate and reasonable' to host opinion show

AP

In an interview with the Associated Press, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly said her new primetime show (9 p.m. ET) will essentially be what her old daytime program was: A news show free of her opinion.

“I’ve never wanted to be an opinion host, and [Fox News CEO] Roger Ailes hasn’t wanted me to be an opinion host,” she told the AP. “I don’t think I’d be very successful anyway. I’m not an ideologue, and I think you have to be successful in a prime-time opinion-based show. I think I’m too moderate and reasonable.”

Of course, not being an "opinion host" isn't the same thing as being a host without an opinion. During her former two-hour daytime show, Kelly often argued with guests, coming at them with a clear point of view. Most memorable were her interviews with former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.).

Kelly's new show, "The Kelly File," debuts Monday night.
