Megyn Kelly Lands The Interview That Will Have The White House Watching

f there was one interview that would almost certainly lead the West Wing to change channels from Fox News to NBC, Megyn Kelly has it. The former Fox News Channel host confirmed on Thursday that Russian President Vladimir Putin will sit for an exclusive interview Friday. This priceless exclusive is just in time to be the showcase segment for Kelly’s Sunday night magazine show, which debuts on NBC this weekend.

“The timing of that couldn’t be better,” NBC’s Matt Lauer said Thursday on NBC’s Today after Kelly–in her first appearance on Today–announced the interview at the end of a report from Russia. Kelly is currently covering the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, where Putin will participate in a panel.

“We just got word this morning that President Putin has agreed to sit with yours truly for a one-on-one interview at the conclusion of tomorrow’s forum and I’ll get the chance to ask him directly about these allegations of meddling and the prospect of our two countries working together and beyond,” Kelly said.

The interview, which NBC has worked for months to lock down, will serve as a highly newsworthy boost for Kelly’s show, Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly, which launches at 7 p.m. against the most enduring news magazine in American television, CBS’ 60 Minutes.
