Megyn Kelly Finalizes Multi-Million Dollar Contract Settlement With NBC

12 January 2019

Kelly, who moved from Fox News in January 2017 after a headline-grabbing confrontation with Donald Trump during the presidential campaign, never quite clicked at her new network.

Megyn Kelly and NBC have reached an exit agreement, almost three months after the television host made controversial comments about blackface on television.

The former Fox News star was approximately halfway through a 3-year contract with NBC valued at $69 million and she apparently won't leave with nothing.

"The parties have resolved their differences, and Megyn Kelly is no longer an employee of NBC", the network confirmed on Friday night. "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".

The 48-year-old television personality parted ways with the network following her controversial discussion of blackface worn for Halloween costumes.

"You'll definitely see me back on", she replied, adding that her first priority is to get a new dog. Her remarks prompted the suspension of her hour on NBC News' flagship program "Today", but network executives had already been feuding with her over disappointing ratings and the show's editorial focus.

"And I don't know, I felt like who doesn't love Diana Ross?"

While she won't be allowed to sling mud at NBC, reports also claim that Kelly is not believed to be subject to any agreement that would prevent her from seeking work at another network. At one point, she asked what costumes could be considered racist. NBC announced on Friday, Oct. 26, 2018 that "Megyn Kelly Today" will not return.

Kelly gave a tearful apology on the show the next day. "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly" aired just eight episodes in 2017 - the last being a much-criticized interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Kelly apologized to her colleagues later that day in an internal email, saying, "I realize now that such behavior is indeed wrong, and I am sorry".
