Meanwhile, Kelly, 46, took to Twitter last week to celebrate her new gig.

“First day on the job @NBCNews!” she captioned a photo of herself at the office. “On the air in June, but had so much fun meeting new colleagues today. Grateful. Happy.”

Kelly’s departure from Fox News for a new role at NBC News was announced in January. The network has not yet announced her official role, but chairman Andrew Lack offered the journalist three new gigs at NBC, including a chance to host her own daytime news and discussion program, anchor an in-depth Sunday night news show, as well as a role taking part in the network’s special political programming and other big event coverage.

“We’re excited to have her,” Today show anchor Savannah Guthrie recently told The Hollywood Reporter. “I think she’s going to be great. We feel lucky. We feel like it was a great get.”
