She left Fox in the fall, but had to delay her start with NBC due to a noncompete clause. She was officially released from her contract this week. Her daytime show will start in the fall, but her Sunday night program will begin in the summer.

Earlier this week, it was rumored that Kelly is trying to land a heavy weight interview for her new Sunday night magazine show.

Page Six’s Emily Smith speculated that NBC News chairman Andy Lack, who has been in Russia this week, is trying to land an interview for Kelly with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Smith wonders if Lack would give the interview to Kelly to debut her new Sunday night magazine show.
