It’s official: Megyn Kelly is out of NBC

After months of flagging ratings for her show, Megyn Kelly Today, the network eventually removed the host after she wondered on air why blackface was considered inappropriate, during a segment on Halloween costumes. Two people close to the negotiations said Kelly was paid the rest of her three-year, $69 million contract, equalling about $30 million. This means the news anchor is able to begin working immediately.

Her comments that drew outrage on social media and condemnations from Kelly's colleagues at NBC, including Craig Melvin and Al Roker, and was covered by Lester Holt on NBC Nightly News.

The pair met on Wednesday at the Purple Light Pavilion at Zhongnanhai, the office complex of China's top government officials. In contrast, more than one million people in the United States became permanent residents in 2017 alone.

Megyn Kelly Today kicked off in mid-2017, though the show seemed to be doomed from the start. Kelly apologized on her show the next day, but it wasn't enough: Lack condemned her remarks in a town hall meeting at NBC, and by the end of the week Megyn Kelly Today was cancelled.

NBC delivered the news of Kelly's exit with one sentence late Friday.

Her tenure was also a failure for NBC News Chairman Andrew Lack, who lured her from Fox News Channel with the type of big-money contract that was once standard in television news but now is less so with financial constrictions and less viewership.

Despite her differences with NBC News management, Kelly won accolades for her interviews with accusers of President Donald Trump, Bill O'Reilly, Harvey Weinstein, Roy Moore and other powerful men. Fox reportedly offered her a new contract worth more than $20 million a year, but Kelly was eager to shed the combative style she honed at the conservative network. "I want to look at everything", she said. "You do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface for Halloween or a black person who puts on whiteface for Halloween". NBC would not comment Friday on whether the separation agreement allows her to write about her experiences at the network. 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".
