Report: Zucker actively wooing Megyn Kelly for CNN’s 8 or 9pm slot

According to a Drudge Report siren, CNN Worldwide president is actively pursuing Fox News star Megyn Kelly to anchor on CNN in primetime — at 8pm or 9pm, the report says.

“He is moving the Himalayan mountains to get her,” a top insider explains. “But they are tripped up on money. He simply can’t pay her the $20 million a year FOX has on the table.”

A top source close to the action describes how Kelly would be an immediate international star at CNN. “It’s the opportunity of lifetime.”

CNN’s current 8pm anchor, Anderson Cooper, just re-upped with the network for another five years.

Kelly has turned down Zucker’s offer of primetime in the past.
