Redstone has approached current and former Fox News personalities, including Kelly, as she explores launching a conservative-focused news and opinion outlet, according to The Hollywood Reporter. (Redstone's spokesperson has denied any plan to launch a conservative outlet.) "This Redstone plan for a new TV service also would have a streaming component. THR has learned that Pluto, which Viacom acquired in March for $340 million, is about to launch an as-yet-unannounced streaming conservative news and opinion channel," says The Hollywood Reporter. "A source says the idea for that network was in the works before the Pluto acquisition."
