Jim Kelly to receive Jimmy V Award for battling cancer

  Jim Kelly to receive Jimmy V Award for battling cancer Buffalo Bills Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly says he's going to receive ESPN's Jimmy V Award for the toughness and perseverance he's displayed during his ongoing battle with oral cancer. Kelly says cable network officials informed him about 10 days ago that he will receive the honor at the ESPY Awards next month. He made the announcement Monday while attending his charitable foundation's 32nd golf tournament outside of Buffalo.

‘ Today ’ Execs Eager To Move Megyn Kelly ’s Show To Later Hour. The star’s program has suffered from low ratings. By Radar Staff. “No one at NBC thought Matt Lauer being fired could solve an ongoing problem facing the third hour of the show — Megyn Kelly ’s terrible ratings — but there is a

Make way for Megyn ! NBC 'to revamp the Today show and possibly move Hoda and Kathie Lee from their timeslot when Kelly joins the network'. This means she could be taking over Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford's timeslot, which they have held since the fourth hour started airing a decade ago.

Struggling Megyn Kelly could be on the move at NBC.

Page Six reports Tuesday that Kelly could switch time slots on the Today show, changing places with Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb’s 10 a.m. hour.

The rationale behind such a move is, according to Page Six, simple to fathom: The 10 a.m. hour is struggling, as those viewers who aren’t connecting with Kelly are ditching the network at 9 a.m. and not coming back.

Ratings published in October last year showed Kelly’s 9 a.m. slot down 32 percent compared to the time slot’s viewership in the previous year, which had a knock-on effect of reducing Gifford and Kotb by 26 percent in the hour afterward.

Man arrested after calling police to have his drugs tested

  Man arrested after calling police to have his drugs tested Police receive many calls for assistance, but this one was quite unusual. Douglas Kelly, 49, from Hawthrone, Florida, called the Putnam County Sheriff's Office on Tuesday, police said, asking them to test the drugs he bought a week earlier because he wanted to press charges against the person who sold them to him.Kelly's public defender did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Police said Kelly told them he had a bad reaction after he smoked what he believed to be meth and thought he was sold another illegal substance.

The move could also mean that Kelly will be groomed to take over the anchor spot on Today , currently held by Savannah Guthrie, who is on maternity leave. A lead anchor role at ‘ Today ’ isn’t part of the conversation for Megyn .”

When I first heard Megyn Kelly was moving from Fox to NBC, I thought, "Bad move ." That's one of the reasons Megyn Kelly Today has flopped. The other reason is Megyn Kelly herself. And yet, Kelly 's committed to proving it can be done.

“It’s the smart move,” an insider told Page Six of the alleged plan of moving Kelly, who signed with NBC in January 2017 for a reported $20 million per year but has battled negative publicity and poorer than expected ratings ever since.

“At the very least that limits the damage already done to Hoda and Kathie Lee—maybe with a strong lead-in from Today at 9 a.m., they’ll even pick up some of the viewers they lost since Megyn went on the air.”

Loyal network insiders sought to rubbish the story, telling Page Six that Kelly’s numbers are heading upward, while another quipped it was “just another ‘timeless’ rumor about Megyn Kelly.”

However, the move would make sense for Kotb, who has successfully co-anchored the 7 to 9 a.m. slot since Matt Lauer resigned over sexual-misconduct allegations.

Kelly’s career at NBC has been checkered since she arrived there last year; her Sunday night NBC News show has gone to a “periodic” schedule after her controversial interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, with whom she posed for selfies.

Kelly has, however, won praise in some quarters for her coverage of sexual-misconduct allegations in recent months—she herself has alleged she was subject to unwanted advances from the late Roger Ailes at Fox News and formally complained to News Corp. about Bill O’Reilly’s behavior toward some women.
