NBC Officially Cuts Ties With Megyn Kelly

Megyn Kelly Finalizes Multi-Million Dollar Contract Settlement With NBC

Kelly was midway through a lucrative contract that paid her US$69 million over three years - an eye-popping sum even in the context of USA television news.

Lack's gambit was a pricey one: Kelly's three-year deal was worth a total of $69 million.

Terms of a non-disparagement agreement were critical for both sides, as Kelly has hinted that she knows about some of the skeletons in NBC's closet.

Megyn Kelly Today launched in September 2017, so she didn't even make it halfway through her three-year commitment before the network decided it was wiser to just fork over $69 million and show her the door immediately.

Kelly's exit from NBC was greeted on social media with a mix of celebration and critical barbs directed at the network.

While at Fox, her accusations of unwanted sexual advances by the network's late chief executive, Roger Ailes, helped lead to his firing.

Megyn Kelly and NBC News have finalized a multi-million dollar settlement deal, Mediaite has learned. "Today" loyalists were furious that fan favorite Tamron Hall was shown the door to make room for Kelly. The talk show premiered with a controversial interview with the cast of Will & Grace. The network announced on October 26 that Kelly's hour-long segment on the "Today" show - which was already troubled by mediocre ratings - would not return after her controversial "blackface" remarks.

She will be replaced in the third hour of "Today" by anchors Craig Melvin, Al Roker, Dylan Dreyer and Sheinelle Jones, NBC said.

Honoree Megyn Kelly speaks onstage during The Hollywood Reporter's Annual Women in Entertainment Breakfast in Los Angeles at Milk Studios on December 7, 2016 in Hollywood, California. 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".

Kelly apologized for the comment in a letter to NBC staff, and later made an on-air apology.

Kelly raised eyebrows a year ago when asked if Lauer could ever make a comeback.
