First promo released for Megyn Kelly's NBC News show

Former Fox News host Megyn Kelly's hotly anticipated new show on NBC debuted its first promo this week.

The 30-second ad for "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly" touts the host's "sharp, strong journalism and the power of NBC News." The program is set to debut on NBC News on June 4 at 7 p.m. 

The promo debuted Thursday night during "NBC Nightly News."

CBS’s highly rated “60 Minutes,” now in its 49th year, runs in the same 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.

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

She 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 program 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, which will be closely watched in the media world from a ratings perspective. 

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

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

Kelly, 46, is also slated to host a morning talk show at 9 a.m. on weekdays.
