Megyn Kelly's morning show at NBC has been canceled

Megyn Kelly's morning show at NBC has been canceled

"Megyn Kelly Today is not returning", NBC News just announced.

Megyn Kelly has a new defender in her corner as she heads towards a potential exit at NBC: Catholic League president Bill Donahue.

Multiple factors explain Kelly's impending exit from NBC.

Referring to her own childhood, Kelly recalled how using blackface at Halloween was acceptable "as long as you were dressing like a character".

Many of her former Fox News Channel viewers were upset by her perceived disloyalty in leaving and her clashes with Trump during the campaign. Hope she comes back to Fox'. The reports also suggest that Kelly may be out at NBC altogether.

At issue in the negotiations is whether Kelly is entitled to the remainder of her contract, which was reported to be worth $69 million in total over three years.

This week, Kelly apologized and said she was sorry for her comments about blackface.

Kelly's attorney, Bryan Freedman, was quoted as saying that "discussions about next steps are continuing".

While at Fox, Kelly cultivated a reputation for toughness and a willingness to challenge conservative orthodoxy.

In a forthcoming film based on the downfall of ex-Fox chairman and CEO Roger Ailes, accused of sexual harassment by many employees, Kelly will be played by Charlize Theron, who is now in the middle of a production.

That being said, Kelly's biggest errors were that she failed to acknowledge the racist history associated with blackface and posed such questions to an all-white panel. Ratings were considerably lower than the hour hosted by Al Roker and Tamron Hall that she had replaced. "Rather than creating a teaching moment for everyone, NBC chose to shame her", McManus said.

According to several online reports Megyn's show has been cancelled.

"I have never been a PC kind of person, but I do understand the value of being sensitive to our history, particularly on race and ethnicity", she said. She also gave a platform to allegations against NBC News's Tom Brokaw, both of which stirred resentment among her NBC colleagues.

Last September, Kelly caused a furor when she interviewed actress Jane Fonda and quizzed her about plastic surgery.

Lester Holt dedicated an entire segment of Tuesday's broadcast of The Nightly News to her blackface comments, which even invoked her embarrassing insistence that Santa Claus is "white" from her Fox News days back in 2013.
