Election Night Drama Pays Off for Fox News’ Megyn Kelly (VIDEO)

You may recall Megyn Kelly, who is reportedly going to replace Sean Hannity during the 9 o’clock hour, from election night this past November.

The 42 year-old newswoman famously rushed backstage with cameras in tow and disputed Karl Rove’s assertion that Obama didn’t win the Presidency by confirming with the network’s numbers team.

“You keep saying that, but he won, Karl, he won,” she said. “And that’s what the Republicans care about, what the Democrats care about.”

Fox News chief Roger Ailes, an avid supporter of Kelly’s, wouldn’t confirm Drudge’s story about the anchor’s appointment at parent company 21st Century Fox’s investor day on Thursday.

“I don’t confirm or deny any rumors, and that is a rumor at the moment,” said Ailes. But he did clearly suggest Hannity isn’t leaving the channel.

“All of our stars will be back,” Ailes vowed.  “Hannity 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.”

A Fox News spokesperson added: “We will neither confirm nor deny any programming schedule changes. As previously stated, the network has signed long-term deals with Megyn Kelly, Bret Baier, Shepard Smith, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and Greta Van Susteren.”
