RE­PLAC­ING MEGYN?

OK! (USA) - - Insider -

Fans of the To­day show may soon be wak­ing up to a brand-new face! Kelly Clark­son is in talks to re­place Megyn Kelly fol­low­ing the drama sur­round­ing the for­mer Fox News host’s con­tro­ver­sial com­ments, sources tell OK!. “Kelly has co­hosted To­day many times and the hosts and staff adore her,” says an in­sider. Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, Kelly has al­ready done test shoots for her an­tic­i­pated day­time se­ries, The Kelly Clark­son Show, which is set to pre­miere next fall. And while it was in­tended to serve as an af­ter­noon lead-in to Ellen, net­work hon­chos may want to bump it up. “Ex­ecs are think­ing it might be the per­fect time to give Megyn’s To­day slot to Kelly,” says the source. But there is one is­sue. “To­day films in NYC and Kelly’s new show was planned to be pro­duced out of L.A.,” says a sec­ond source, point­ing out that the singer also stars as a coach on The Voice, which shoots on the West Coast. “Kelly could move to NYC, but they’d need to move The Voice there, too.” Not that it’s out­side the realm of pos­si­bil­ity given Kelly’s cre­den­tials. Adds the in­sider, “She al­ready has a huge fan base and is ex­tremely well-liked and re­lat­able.” Stay tuned!
