It’s official: Megyn Kelly is out of NBC

  • Megyn Kelly officially exits NBC News

Megyn Kelly, a former NBC host who has parted ways with the network over her controversial blackface comments, has confirmed that viewers will see her on TV again this year.

Kelly will be walking away with her full $69 million contract, meaning she will be collecting a lump sum between $25 and $30 million, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Kelly apologized for the comment in a letter to NBC staff, and later made an on-air apology. Her daily morning show, "Megyn Kelly Today", suffered low ratings, and her assertive style at times seemed out of place in the anodyne environment of morning television.

She brought up blackface during a segment the week before Halloween while holding a round-table discussion with an all-white panel about offensive costumes. The network had ambitious plans for Kelly, handing her hosting duties for a Sunday evening news magazine and the 9 a.m. hour of the "Today" show.

On Friday night, NBC News confirmed toThe New York Times that both sides reached an agreement, nearly three months after the network fired Kelly for wondering why it was inappropriate for people to wear blackface costumes on Halloween.

This contributed to tensions between Kelly and NBC executives, including NBC News chair Andy Lack, who invested tens of millions of dollars in her hiring.

While at Fox, her accusations of unwanted sexual advances by the network's late chief executive, Roger Ailes, helped lead to his firing. The episode with Trump accusers had more than 2.9 million viewers, one of her biggest audiences on the network.

But when those stories began to fade, Kelly had trouble attracting an audience in the soft-focus world of morning television. Kelly said it was OK when she was "a kid" (she was born in 1970) to don blackface - "so long as you were dressing up as a character. I want to look at everything", she said.

Critics accused her of ignoring the ugly history of minstrel shows and movies in which whites applied blackface to mock blacks. NBC would not comment Friday on whether the separation agreement allows her to write about her experiences at the network.

The backlash to Kelly was swift and immediate, exceeding the outrage she generated for her remarks years ago about Santa's race.
