Megyn Kelly To Interview Vladimir Putin For Premiere Of Her NBC Show

Megyn Kelly To Interview Vladimir Putin For Premiere Of Her NBC Show:

Just like Donald Trump during the presidential campaign, when the mere mention of his name was sufficient to boost one’s Nielsen rating by several points, so Russia’s president Vladimir Putin has, for various reason, become a media magnet over the past year. And when it comes to Putin, perhaps the most anticipated interview with the Russian leader is that of Oliver Stone, which is expected to premiere in less than two weeks on Showtime, on June 12.

So, in an attempt to share in the anticipation and borrow some of the limelight, Megyn Kelly said she has landed an interview with none other than the Russian leader for the premiere of her NBC newsmagazine Sunday. She announced the big “get” on Thursday’s “Today” show. 

According to NBC, she’s already in Russia to moderate a discussion featuring Putin at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, and the interview will take place afterward. They’ve been working to land the interview since Kelly agreed to serve on the panel.

Kelly left Fox News Channel for her job at NBC News, where she will also host a morning talk show starting in September.

And, as NBC adds, in the best competitive tradition, “CBS This Morning” on Thursday aired a portion of a Putin interview conducted by filmmaker Oliver Stone  which as noted above will air on CBS’ corporate sister Showtime in less than two weeks.
