NBC Tells Megyn Kelly: ‘You’re FIRED!’

Share this:

While Megyn Kelly‘s future with NBC is still being decided, the network announced on Friday that her talk show, which was the third hour of the Today show, has been canceled.

From Yahoo!:

“Megyn Kelly Today is not returning,” an NBC News spokesperson tells Yahoo Entertainment. “Next week, the 9 a.m. hour will be hosted by other Today co-anchors.”

No further details have been provided as to what it will be called or if Kelly will be leaving the network completely, which has been rumored in the days since she controversially defended blackface while talking about Halloween costumes.

Kelly and the high-powered litigator she secured in the wake of the scandal, Bryan Freedman, were meeting with NBC brass on Friday to negotiate an exit package. Kelly inked a three-year deal with the network for $69 million in January 2017, and according to multiple reports she is demanding that her contract be paid out in full — approximately $46 million. NBC confirmed the negotiations were taking place, noting Kelly will possibly be leaving the network, but it seems that latter part is still being hammered out.
