Details are beginning to emerge about former Fox News host Megyn’s Kelly’s two new shows at NBC.

“Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly,” the host’s weekly news magazine show, will premiere on NBC on June 4 at 7 p.m. The New York Post was first to report the news.

So far, no guests have been announced, but sources confirm Fox Sports reporter and “Dancing With the Stars” host Erin Andrews will be among Kelly’s first interview subjects. Kelly was spotted chatting with Andrews on the beach in Santa Monica, Calif., the day after her appearance at the network’s upfront presentation with advertisers.

According to the Post, Kelly is also hopeful about landing a one-on-one interview with Russian president Vladimir Putin. Kelly will travel to Russia in June to moderate a session during the annual St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. Putin is among a group of panelists that includes Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Austrian Chancellor Christian Kern.

“The conversation will cover a wide range of global political and economic topics, including international trade agreements, cyber-security and the impact of rising military tensions,” according to an NBC spokesperson.

With a 7 p.m. time slot, NBC appears to be going after “60 Minutes,” the unstoppable news show that’s been an unbeatable feature at CBS on Sunday nights for 50 years.
