Piers Morgan is getting some competition in the form of Fox newswoman Megyn Kelly!

Kelly, who's currently on maternity leave from work, has landed her own 9 p.m. Fox News time slot, according to the Drudge Report. Kelly's show would replace Sean Hannity's current 9 p.m. gig and would air in direct competition with Morgan's CNN show Piers Morgan Live.

So what's Morgan think about his new time-slot rival? "Bring it on @megynkelly," the 48-year-old Brit tweeted earlier today with a link to the Drudge Report's story.

Sounds like Morgan isn't too worried!

Additionally, the Drudge's top secret Fox source says, "It's all about Megyn. She is the new face of cable news. She has it all!" Fox News will make the scheduling announcement later this month, they say.

"We will neither confirm nor deny any programming schedule changes" Fox News Channel said in a statement today (via Deadline). "As previously stated, the network has signed long-term deals with Megyn Kelly, Bret Baier, Shepard Smith, Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity and Greta Van Susteren."

Kelly is currently on maternity leave after giving birth to baby boy Thatcher Bray on July 23. Thatcher is Kelly and husband Doug Brunt's third child together.
