While Fox News chief Roger Ailes was mum on the speculation about prime-time lineup changes, host Sean Hannity did respond to the rumors of Megyn Kelly’s ascension to his 9pm time slot.
Ailes was asked about that rumor, first reported on Drudge Report, during a conversation with Fox News host Neil Cavuto on Thursday.
“Generally, I don’t confirm or deny any rumors, and that is a rumor at the moment,” Ailes said. “All of our stars will be back,” he added.
When asked specifically about what the future holds for Hannity, Ailes said “[he] is a brand that many of our viewers love and want to see, and, as you know, is one of the nicest guys in the building,” as reported by Mediaite.
Meanwhile, on his radio show Thursday, Hannity said of the rumored change, “I am actually enjoying people that really don’t know a whole lot, just going nuts.”
He then added: “Let’s just say in the end I’m very happy. That’s all I can say at this point.”
At a later point in his discussion with Cavuto, Ailes expanded further on the expected changes:
“I am making a few minor changes, but let me just say that since FOX News Channel came on, MSNBC and CNN have changed either their primetime lineup of shows or their primetime talent 64 times [since 1997, although FNC launched in 1996]. I think maybe I’ve changed it five or six so you have to choose well in the first place and have the guts to stay with people who can do the job. And that’s what I try to do.”
