Fox News is doing the prime-time shuffle.

The cable network announced Tuesday that Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly will be moving into the prime-time line-up, where she will be featured in some “as yet unspecified capacity,” according to the press release.

Kelly, who hosts the daytime program “America Live,” is currently out on maternity leave. The changes will go into effect upon he return from leave.

Fox News also announced it has locked in some of their big-name talent, by signing new long-term deals with Bret Baier, Shepard Smith, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and Greta Van Susteren.

A new prime-time schedule will be announced at a later date, FNC said.
