PageSix scooped that former Fox News star Megyn Kelly will officially start at NBC in May, and her Sunday night show alongside Kate Snow will premiere in June. Kelly was originally expected to start in July after her contract with Fox expired, but she was released from the Fox deal two weeks ago.
Behind the scenes: NBC News executive producer David Corvo will produce Kelly's Sunday show with NBC producer Elizabeth Cole. NBC News chairman Andy Lack also flew to Russia earlier this month to meet with Vladimir Putin's spokesman, which PageSix says is sparking buzz that a Putin interview could kick off Kelly's show.
Look ahead: Kelly's second NBC show, a weekday morning program, won't debut until the fall.
Note: NBC is an investor in Axios and Andy Lack is a member of the Axios board.
