Megyn Kelly touts new NBC show: 'You will laugh and you will cry'

Megyn Kelly on Tuesday tweeted out a promotion for her new weekly NBC program, saying "Sunday nights are about to get a lot more interesting" as "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly" gets set to premiere on June 4 at 7:00 p.m.

In the promotional video, the 46-year-old former Fox News host listed five things viewers can expect to see from her new program

"I have missed you and this," said Kelly, who has not been on TV since departing Fox News in early January. 

"You will laugh and you will cry — I know I did — in shooting these stories," she continued. "You're going to some feel outrage, you're going to feel some inspiration, and we hope you find us 'Must-See-TV.’”

Kelly added that the "incredible journalists at NBC News and yours truly will really be bringing you the stories of our time." 

CBS’s highly rated “60 Minutes,” now in its 49th year, runs in the same Sunday time slot. But the show mostly airs repeats during the summer, giving Kelly’s show less competition as it launches.

Kelly departed from Fox News in January despite being offered a reported $100 million to stay with the “The Kelly File” on weeknights.

She cited at the time a desire to be home with her husband and young children during evening hours.

Kelly was reportedly crucial to an internal investigation into sexual harassment claims against Fox’s late former chairman and CEO, Roger Ailes. 

Guests for Kelly's debut have not been announced, but various reports have surfaced that Russian President Vladimir Putin and Fox Sports reporter Erin Andrews may be featured in Kelly's first episode, the ratings of which will be closely watched in the media world. 

"Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly" will run this summer, then go on hiatus while “Sunday Night Football,” the top-rated program on broadcast television, airs in the fall.

After football season and next February’s Winter Olympics on NBC conclude, the show will return.

Kelly is also slated to host a morning talk show at 9 a.m. on weekdays.
