Fox News' Megyn Kelly is moving to primetime, the network announced Tuesday.  Kelly will move to her new post after she returns from maternity leave, according to reports.

"Megyn is an exceptional talent who has successfully filled and surpassed each role we have given her at the network," Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes said in a statement. "Her ability to command the screen, delve into the facts and lead a debate is what makes her one of the most sought-after anchors in the business."

The anchorwoman had signed a new contract with Fox News in May. Last fall, before negotiations got underway, Ailes told TVNewser, "We have a great relationship. Eventually, we'd love her to stay here and be even a bigger star."

It is unclear whether Kelly will land on the network's schedule. Fox News also announced on Tuesday that it has signed long-term deals with Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity and Greta Van Susteren, who host from 8 until 11 PM, as well as with Bret Baier and Shep Smith, who host the 6 PM and 7 PM hours.
