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.
