Megyn Kelly's upcoming morning program at NBC has been given the 9 a.m. time slot, a network spokesperson confirmed to ET.

The news means that Kelly will go head-to-head in several markets with ABC's Live With Kelly and Ryan -- which announced on Monday morning that Kelly Ripa's new co-host will be Ryan Seacrest -- when her program launches in the fall.

Kelly also has a Sunday night newsmagazine show debuting in June.

The thrilled star took to Instagram to share her excitement about her new gigs, posting a black-and-white photo showing her posing against a wall with the NBC logo.

“First day on the job @NBCNews!” she wrote. “On the air in June, but had so much fun meeting new colleagues today. Grateful. Happy.”

Kelly’s move to NBC comes after 12 years at Fox News and is part of a multi-year contract, which will also see her involved with breaking news and special political coverage.

Earlier this year, a Fox News insider told ET that the move was sparked by Kelly wanting more time with her children, Yardley, Edward and Thatcher, rather than financial gain.
