Piers Morgan Pitches Hosting Show With Megyn Kelly

A former primetime rival to Megyn Kelly is informally raising the idea of co-hosting a show with the ex-Fox News and NBC News host.

One day after Kelly praised Piers Morgan, who currently co-anchors a British morning show, on Twitter, he told The Daily Beast the pair would be a formidable duo if they joined forces.

"[A]ll I would say is that Megyn's always been one of my favorite broadcasters — fearless, smart, provocative and well-informed," Morgan said.

"I always wanted her as my lede-in at CNN, and I know conversations were had to try to make that happen but sadly didn't come to anything. I'd love to work with her one day if the opportunity ever arose — I'm sure we'd have a lot of fun on air together, and zero prisoners would be taken …"

For a brief time while Kelly hosted "The Kelly File" on Fox News, Morgan was the host of CNN's "Piers Morgan Live" — which aired at the same time as Kelly's show.

Morgan wouldn't give any additional details to The Daily Beast when asked about the proposal to team up with Kelly.

"I'll just leave it with my quote … You can then speculate to your heart's content."

Kelly's contract with NBC was terminated in January after she came under fire for making remarks related to wearing blackface.
