Megyn Kelly's addition to the prime time show lineup has caused a shuffling of Fox New's current lineup.
As previously reported back in July, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly was promoted within the network and it was announced she would be moving to prime time with a new show.
According to Los Angeles Times, Fox News announced their new lineup on Tuesday, which now includes Kelly's show, The Kelly File.
The network has room since Shepard Smith was already announced as moving towards the day side, leaving an open slot.
The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Kelly will be moving to the 9 p.m. slot where Sean Hannity used to be. Hannity will be moved to later at 10 p.m. and Greta Van Susteren is now at 7 p.m. where Smith was.
The O'Reilly Factor will remain at its 8 p.m. slot as the only unchanged time.
FNC chairman and CEO Roger Ailes said, "As the network continues to dominate with the top 13 programs in cable news, Fox News already redefined primetime viewing to extend well beyong the antiquated 8-11 p.m. format."
The lineup changes will start Monday, Oct. 7.
