Sources close to the network told the New York's Post's Page Six that Kelly - who announced she would join NBC this month after more than a decade at Fox - is expected to take over either the 9 a.m. Today hour, now hosted by Tamron Hall and Al Roker, or else the 10 a.m. hour, now hosted by Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford.

The segment Kelly will likely replace is the 9 am hour, Today's Take, which has seen a number of shake-ups in the past year-from my sweet prince Willie Geist's departure for MSNBC over the summer to Billy Bush's ill-fated stint.
