Let’s start with the big news: Megyn Kelly, NBC’s new 9 a.m. anchor —
and host of a new Sunday evening newsmagazine — made her first public appearance with the network.
Three New York Times media reporters — John Koblin, Michael M. Grynbaum,
and Sapna Maheshwari — assess what they saw at Monday’s NBCUniversal presentation, which kicked off the television upfronts.
NBC Woos Advertisers With Megyn Kelly, the New Morning Anchor –
By JOHN KOBLIN, MICHAEL M. GRYNBAUM and SAPNA MAHESHWARIMAY 15, 2017
This week the major networks unveil their offerings for the coming season to advertising buyers in Manhattan.
Matt Lauer introduced Ms. Kelly as someone “who shares our values” — weighted
words as the former Fox News star braves the left-leaning enclave of 30 Rock.
It was hard not to scrutinize the body language between Ms. Kelly and her new colleagues in the notoriously cutthroat NBC News division.
JOHN: Remember it was just two years ago that we were still in the throes of the Brian Williams scandal
and the news division went entirely unmentioned at the presentation.
JOHN: We’re just back from Radio City Music Hall and a preview of what’s in store for the NBC and a litany of cable networks, including Bravo and E!
Now, with Colbert surging ahead of “The Tonight Show” in the ratings, I’m sure
we’re going to see a lot more of him at CBS’s presentation on Wednesday.
